DBA and the DRBA would like to extend its deepest sympathies to Ron Burgess and the family of Lesley Burgess who sadly passed away last week.
Lesley was a big part of Dandenong Basketball over many years having played domestic basketball at Dandenong from 1963 till 2008, also playing in the Dandenong Women’s Representative team in Country Championships and later Victorian Championships between 1964 and 1970.
She coached Junior Rangers teams from 1970 to 1978 and volunteered her time on the Junior Rangers committee during the same period. She was also a member of the gold medal-winning team at the 2002 World Masters Games team in the Women’s over-60 group.
Lesley conducted the Queen’s Birthday Junior Tournament at Dandenong 1978 to 1993 and coordinated other successful fundraising events for DBA. She was a door keeper/receptionist at the stadium for some 30 years and was awarded DBA Life Membership in 1990.
A long-time supporter of both the DBA and DBRA, she will be sadly missed.
