It is with deep regret that I inform the Ulysses Club and Melbourne Branch members of the passing of Josh Rycken, son of our Branch Treasurer Rick.
Josh passed away overnight after battling muscular dystrophy for most of his too-short life. Josh was an active participant in wheelchair sports for many years and shared his passionate support of the Western Bulldogs with his Mum - and was there at the 'G on that one day in October 2016 when the Doggies got up for only their second premiership.
Rick's membership of the Ulysses Club followed a Rycken family outing with Josh to one of our branches Very Special Kids days at Cardinia Reservior Park.
On behalf of the Members and Committee of the Ulysses Club Melbourne Branch, I extend our sincere condolences to Rick, Tanya and family.
Josh's Funeral Service will be held on Thursday this week per the details below:
