Vale John Creighton

John Creighton, of Kyogle, was killed in a freak accident while working as a logger at Whian Whian on 10 October. He was 59.

John played with the Kyogle Turkeys and was a member of the 1983 team that won the Group One grand final. He coached the Turkeys’ reserve grade the following year, taking them to a grand final but they missed out on the major premiership. In 1992 John coached the Turkeys’ Under-18 team to a major premiership. He also played touch football at State level.

He was a community-minded person, volunteering with the SES and the fire brigade. John is survived by his wife Barbara and children Russell and Wendy.
