GBYC Mal (hoppy) Hopkins

It is with much sadness and deep regret that I must announce the passing of Hoppy on saturday whilst competing on his bike in the cowaramup 24hr Delerium. Mal leaves behind a wife and two lovely children, also a huge group of friends and associates.
Taken too young.
Those who new Mal knew what a fierce competitor he was and gave everything to be victorious.
The world was a better place with Hoppy in it.
We will miss you
Rest in peace
Pete C
Busso

His funeral and service will be held 1000 at Barretts Funerals  Bussell Hwy Busselton Friday March 21st.
Wake at GBYC.
Our thoughts are with his Wife, two young kids and family members.
