Wally Cavill, 1928-2017

Thursday, 21 September 2017

We were very saddened to hear about the passing of Wally Cavill earlier this week.  Wally had been in poor health for a while, and passed away peacefully surrounded by his family.

Anyone who has orienteered since about 1980 will know Wally.  He was passionate about orienteering in all its forms, but will be best remembered as "Mr StreetO".   Wally was largely responsible for the development and success of street orienteering in Melbourne, and was recognised with Life Membership of Dandenong Ranges Orienteering Club, and Orienteering Victoria.  He left a huge legacy of mapping, scoring systems, and sheer enthusiasm.  Wally also received community awards for his work with encouraging older people to stay active.

A service to celebrate Wally's life will be held on Tuesday September 26 at 10.45am at the Blair Chapel, Springvale Crematorium.  We hope many of you can attend.  For those of us at Bathurst, we'll get together that day to mark the occasion - check back here for details. Meanwhile, please think of Wally as you enjoy the forest next week.
