It is with much sadness to pass on the news of Barry McLeod's passing on Wednesday night (2/10/19).

Barry, who won the 1969 Stawell Gift, was also an astute trainer of athletes after he retired from running and tasted success with many of his athletes on the VAL circuit and the Australian Nationals. Also, his athletes that made Australian Teams in World Cup's, Olympics & Commonwealth Games were very special to him.

Our thoughts go to his two daughters, Belinda & Kirstie who have cared for him over the past 7 years of his life where he has endured the frustration of Parkinson's Disease.

Funeral details will follow.

Thanks for posting Matt.

Yep, very sad indeed. Barry has struggled with his health for quite a while. He passed away at the age of 73.

Terrific man and a great contributor to the sport, the boy from Barybrook - B J McLeod.

I believe the funeral is schedule for Friday October 11th at Joseph Allison's in Mt Alexander Rd Essendon.
