Koonung Heights CC wishes to advise that Michael Schokman passed away on Saturday 4 October evening.
Since debuting in 1966/67, Michael in some capacity has been a friend, father figure, team mate, mentor, coach, and/or captain to all at Greythorn Park. Michael played 300 games, is the club leading wicket taker, 6 time premiership player, life member and father figure of our club.
Once Michael retired from playing he joined the umpires where he spent 10+ years and was awarded life membership.
The Nungers would not be where they are today without the contribution of Michael. The man was Koonung Heights Cricket Club and for that we will always be indebted.
A Thanksgiving Service for the life of Michael will be held in St Peter’s Anglican Church, 1038 Whitehorse Road Box Hill on Thursday October 16th 2014 commencing at 2.30pm.
Parking available at Centro Shopping Centre.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Michael’s memory to the Cancer Council of Victoria would be appreciated.
Upon conclusion of the funeral, the doors will be opened back at Greythorn Park where an opportunity will arise to share a story or 2 over a glass of red.
