Sadly Wests Old Dog Ken Diack passed away last Friday evening after a 4 year battle with cancer. He leaves behind his wife of almost 49 years, Elena, son Greg and daughter Miranda. He was a loving father and grandfather to Greg’s daughters and was an example of what a family man should be as well as good friend.

Ken Diack, played on the wing for Wests for a number of seasons including 1968 when he scored 25 tries and helped the club to the finals. Through all of his difficulties he remained stoic and maintained the tenacity that the bulldog is renowned for.

Ken played with Stan Pileki, Lyn Crowley and Ray Meagher, and in spite of him being born in New Zealand he would always follow the Wallabies and Reds (only supporting the All Blacks when they were playing the Springboks!!).

A service for Ken will be held at the George Hartnett funeral home in Kelvin Grove on Saturday 28 June 2014 at 1pm.
