Al Carkeet Obituary, Death – Al Carkeet fought valiantly against his illness for a significant amount of time and suffered a terrible amount of pain over the course of the past few weeks; but, he was unable to triumph over it, and he died away yesterday evening. He endured a tremendous amount of suffering. He had struggled against it for a considerable amount of time. We are forced to say our goodbyes to this cherished person despite our reluctance and with a heavy heart because the time we spent with has come to an end.
Al was an outstanding supporter of all age categories in the Slacks Creek Rugby League, but he was especially enthusiastic about our Opens competition. He was a life member of the league and a tremendous fan of the sport. He had a lot of fun just watching our more experienced guys compete. In particular, he shown an uncharacteristically high level of passion with regard to our openers. As people think back on him, the chant “Hammer It” that he shouted from the sidelines will be the one that sticks out the most in their minds.
Although they will remember him for many things, the chant “Hammer It” will be the one that stands out the most. Everyone here is going to miss having him here with us. We will all miss having him with us. We are going to miss having him here with us all. During this difficult moment, we will not stop thinking about and praying for his family. Our thoughts and well wishes are with them. As a consequence of this terrible tragedy, the individual’s loved ones, friends, and coworkers who were there for them and cared about them have all endured a loss that is heartbreaking to them.
