Ted Hussey, the father of Australian cricketers Michael and David, passed away at the age of 73 on Saturday.
While Hussey played a pivotal role in helping his sons represent their country, he was also a former board member of the Western Australian Cricket Association (WACA) and administrator of the Western Australian District Cricket Competition and at the Wanneroo District Cricket Club.
“Ted’s character was such that he will be sadly missed by all within the WA cricket community,” WACA CEO Christina Matthews said. “On a personal level, Ted was a great help to me when I arrived in WA, providing me with an invaluable insight of the history of District Cricket, which assisted enormously in understanding the challenges cricket faced.
“I’m sure I speak for the WA cricket community as a whole when I say our thoughts and hearts go out to Ted’s family.”
