Vale Adam Dunbar
Farewell to a friend and travelling Socceroo supporter14 November 2017 | Pablo Bateson

Our much admired and loved football comrade died last week after losing his battle which followed from his previous long and distinguished services in our Australian defence force. This sad outcome was acknowledged by Australian fans at the Estadio Olimpico via a tribute banner with Adam's name on it.
On Tuesday morning in Sydney, a memorial service was held to celebrate the life of Adam.
Some like myself even wore either Socceroos or Sydney FC team colours consistent with family wishes, and I was privileged to be there. Part of a wonderful eulogy included special mention of Adam’s passion and supporter involvement in the world game especially Australian games across Asia.
Our condolences and sympathies go to his family and many friends.
