Vale Mr Noel Slade (Glen Innes)

The northern NSW racing fraternity is mourning the untimely passing of Mr Noel Slade of Glen Innes.

Known to everyone simply as 'Sladey', he spent 22 years as secretary/manager of Glen Innes Jockey Club and was a popular figure on northern racetracks.

Noel, 79, co-owned several horses with other Glen Innes identities and his biggest thrill came in 2003 when the John Fitzgerald-trained Tahitian Star won the Gold Coast Guineas.

Sladey hosted a Saturday morning sports program on Radio 2NZ for over 30 years which included racing tips and meeting previews, and was hosting a similar program on the Glen Innes community station shortly before his passing.

Noel gave years of service to lawn bowls, rugby league and the All Schools Sports Carnival, and is survived by his wife Deirdre, daughter Simone, son Scott and their families.

Noel's funeral service will take place at 11am this Friday (16th June) at the Holy Trinity Church, Glen Innes. Funeral arrangements are in the hands of Horder Family Funerals.
