Goulburn Valley Football League Morrison medallist Barry Ough lost a brief battle with stomach cancer last week.
After his junior football days playing at Mooroopna, Ough played with VFL-AFL side Melbourne and played two senior games under Carl Ditterich.
After Melbourne he played with VFA side Werribee, before returning to be assistant coach of Mooroopna in the 1970s, winning the Morrison Medal with the Cats in 1979.
He played most of his football as a key defender.
In 1980, he took on the coaching position at Kyabram, where he spent one season before moving on and coaching Ardlethan and Wagga Tigers football clubs in the Riverina.
He finished his playing career in his mid-30s playing with Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast.
He was living with his second wife Christine at Helensvale on the Gold Coast at the time of his death.
Ough was described by his older brother, Trevor, as a loyal and genuine man, who many people would miss.
‘‘He was a really good person,’’ Trevor said.
Ough was on a holiday from the Gold Coast in Sydney when it was discovered he had stomach cancer.
After surgery, he was in a coma for two weeks when he died after complications set in.
His funeral takes place on Thursday at 2.30
He is survived by his wife and two sons, Richard and Wayne, from his marriage to his first wife, Leanne.
