Valedictory – Vikings lose a legend.


Anthony Lynch (Tony or Lynchy)


It is with great sadness but huge pride that the Tuggeranong Vikings Rugby Club acknowledge the life of Anthony ‘Tony’ Lynch (Lynchy).

19/04/1963 – 18/03/2021 (Aged 58). Passed peacefully after a long battle with illness.

Lynchy played a huge role at Vikings as a popular and hardworking volunteer. He was friendly, positive and respected by all. He filled a number of roles as a team coach in both the juniors and lower grades, as well as being a manager, trainer, strapper and bus driver. He was the quintessential volunteer that helped make the club tick. In the juniors he coached several successful teams and positively impacted the lives of many young men, many of them great friends of his boys Michael and Jake, (who themselves were accomplished Vikings players). He was deservedly honoured with Life Membership of the Vikings junior club.

In the senior club Lynchy’s contribution was also huge whether it was strapping the ViQueens, driving a bus full of Brown Snakes on an out-of-town trip or just helping strap and sports train for any/all grades. He did any task asked with a smile and people liked being around him.

Whilst Lynchy had great passion and enthusiasm for all things Vikings, he also loved anything Irish, anything Wests Tigers, his photography and recently photography using drones. He also enjoyed many trips caravanning around with Deb.

Lynchy was also passionate about his work, being a manager for Disability ACT for over 10 years and then a manger in Disability services at Northcott in Cootamundra (where he had moved) for over 7 years.

Our thoughts and sincere condolences go out to Debbie, Jake, Michael and grandchildren Dottie and Eoghan as well as to extended family and friends.

Rest in Valhalla

Funeral details will be passed on when known.
