It is with much sadness that we advise of the passing of Fabian Marsden, Board Member of the Club for 19 years, and town member of the Club since 1988.
Fabian was not only dedicated to his family, wife Wendy, and children Sam, Emily and Hugh, but also a man of many other talents including his chosen profession of Pharmacy, his many volunteer positions as Chair of the Rocks Chamber of Commerce, the Sydney City Council as councillor, and the many hours devoted by him to renal research in Australia.
The time Fabian served on the Board of the Club evidenced his quiet, unassuming, yet purposeful and direct personality, as he strove to moderate the most passionate debate of material issues confronting his beloved Club from time to time.
As his health deteriorated, Fabian continued to offer his opinion and present for meetings, whether committee or Board, without any indication of discomfort.
It was only fitting that his prized vintage Daimler, inherited from his father and so exquisitely restored by Club member Paul Lukes, was on show at his wake at the Club for all attendees, both member and non member, to see.
Whilst Fabian will sadly be missed by us all, we are comforted to know that Wendy and family will continue to visit us and remind us of the fond memories we all hold of Fabian’s time with us.
May he rest in peace.
