Penrith Panthers Life Member and well-known local Harry Slaughter has died.

Mr Slaughter was awarded Life Membership in 1979 and was heavily involved with rugby league in the area.

He served as Deputy Chairman of Penrith RSL, and formed part of the team that led the building of the football oval at his sons’ school, St Dominic’s College in Kingswood.

Mr Slaughter became one of the first residents to move into The Royce retirement village last year when, at 91, he joined his wife Colleen at the complex.

“His interest and passion for the club continued well into his final years,” said Panthers Chairman Dave O’Neill.

“Harry’s service to Panthers and the greater Penrith community is valued, and will be greatly missed, by many.

“Our thoughts are with his family and friends including his wife Colleen and children Kerry, Joanne, Greg, Steven and John.”
