Vale Charlie Kiff

The Boronia footy community is saddened to learn that Charlie Kiff passed away over the weekend.

Charlie was involved with the junior club through the 70’s and was a passionate Hawks supporter during the 80’s. He used to help sell beer out of a wheelbarrow out the front of the club rooms.

Although Charlie didn’t pull on the Hawker jumper himself, he was very good footballer in his own right, playing over 300 games for his local club & also winning the under 19s B&F for Collingwood FC in 1952.

He loved the Hawka and he is remembered fondly as a good man and a great story teller.

Many thanks to Tim Burgess for his memories of Charlie and to Greg Mackley for sharing this photograph of Charlie and other junior dads at the old Boronia ground.
