Roger Wilson

9th July 1948 - 9th June 2021

When the POM Country Club opened in 2003, Roger was one of the first to join the Club. He joined to play snooker and every night after the Golf Club he would come by for a few games and more beers.

In 2004 he joined the POMBSA as the Treasurer and for the next 15 years he took on the role as POMBSA President and PNGBSA Vice President and Secretary/Treasurer.

During his time with snooker he was very supportive and would encourage so many people to take part in the sport. He did this through sponsorship and getting involved with the competitions, tournaments and socially. He also co-ordinated the 2009 & 2013 Oceania Billiards & Snooker Championship hosted in POM and many National and POM tournaments.

Roger was a true promoter of our sport and many other sport that he was involved in. No matter how much he had the night before, he'd turn up on time to host an event.

Goodbye Roger, our friend and fellow player, thank you for being there for our sport.

John Chan
PNGBSA President
