The Australian Commonwealth Games Association (ACGA) is saddened by the news of the passing of former Honorary Secretary/Treasurer and Life Member, Arthur Tunstall OBE.
A fighter all his life, Arthur finally succumbed to a long term illness last night. He is survived by his son Robert.
Arthur served as Honorary Secretary/Treasurer of the ACGA for an astonishing 29 years. He was made a Life Member in 1979.
Our thoughts are with Rob and the Tunstall family.
Craig Phillips, Chief Executive Officer, ACGA: “Arthur was a giant in sports administration in Australia. He was a pioneer during the formative years of his sport of Boxing and the (British Empire &) Commonwealth Games Movement in this country.
For much of his time as an administrator, he had his beloved Peggy by his side. Together they were a formidable duo. The organisation we are today is greatly indebted to the service Arthur provided and the solid financial foundation he created.
He will be deeply missed.”
