SCOTTSDALE Magpies stalwart Ron Hall would leave a huge hole in the club, president Murray Lade said.
Mr Hall suffered a fatal heart attack while watching television last Thursday, just a month before the reunion he organised for the 1964 Northern Tasmanian Football Association premiership-winning football team, of which he was a member.
Just a week ago he expressed a hope that all players from that team would be able to attend because everyone was still alive.
Mr Hall had also organised a separate dinner to honour the club's former players, at the Magpies clubrooms on Friday.
Mr Lade said that Mr Hall was a life member who played nearly 300 games and while no longer a member of the committee, was always prepared to do what was needed for the club.
``Anything its possible to do in a club, Ron's done he was always about and busy,'' he said.
``He played for Scottsdale from a junior, coached, held various committee positions and, most recently, was organising the reunions for July and August - Fridays reunion is going to be a bit of a sad occasion now.''
Danny Hall played nearly 400 games with the Magpies, many with his cousin, Ron, and said that his older cousin was just 17 when he played in the 1964 grand final.
``He was one of the youngest members of that 1964 team - the oldest ones are over 80 now,'' he said.
``He kept his health, never drank or smoked, like a few of us, rode bikes and ran - he was healthy and fit.
``It's really sad.''
Mr Hall would have turned 69 on November 11.
