MELBOURNE Life Member Kevin ‘Ben’ Nancarrow has passed away, aged 89.

Nancarrow worked as a trainer at the club in the 1960s, dedicating many years of service to the Demons.

Life Membership in 1980 was official recognition for his incredible contribution to the red and blue.

Said to be known for his great humour, loyalty and friendship, he will be greatly missed by all those who knew him.

The Melbourne Football Club extends its deepest sympathies to wife Catherine (Kitty) and the Nancarrow family, as well as colleagues and friends.
