VALE RICHARD LAIDLER & FUNERAL SERVICE DETAILS
11 May 19



A service will be held in Japan on Tuesday for Richie were he will say goodbye to Atsuko and their Japanese families.

Then a service at West Preston Lakeside Football Club for all Richards friends to say goodbye.
2 pm Friday 17th

Sadly the club says goodbye to a true character who bought a smile to everyone every time he returned to the club.

Richie “Golden Boots” Laidler or Dickie Bird passed away on Friday in Japan after a long battle with illness. Richie was a part of the 1978 Under 18s Premiership that produced a lot of great people who still volunteer at the club. He played 95 games (31 A Grade) with the club. Every time he was back in Australia he would always catch up with minimal fuss about his battle but more intent on catching up with the plight of the club and the many friendships he had made.

Richie wasn’t bad with the cricket ball either playing with Carlton & Darwin Cricket clubs then going onto coach the National Japan AFL Football & Cricket Teams. Son Jeremy played AFL with Carlton & Swans.

Our deepest sympathy go out to his wife Atsuko and the Laidler Family. He will be sadly missed.
