Charlie at a Wests Golf Day

Charles Victor Tuxford

 18th January 1931 – 30th December 2021


 Western Suburbs Magpies are very sad to advise of the passing of one of the Club’s long serving

and well loved stalwarts, Charlie Tuxford, who passed away suddenly last Thursday at Carrington

Nursing Home, just shy of his 91st. birthday.


Charlie was a life long supporter and volunteer with Wests Magpies and Wests Tigers. 

He also volunteered with many charitable and sporting organisations, including the 2000 Olympics, 

White City Tennis, SIDS, Wests Magpies Golf Days and numerous other causes.


Charlie successfully coached numerous junior teams at East Campbelltown Eagles JRL and Campbelltown City JRL 

and was a Group 6 representative team Manager.

Charlie is a Life member of both JRL Clubs.


Charlie always believed if you are leading at half-time you should never be beaten, 

a point he discussed often with Tim Sheens and other Coaches in many dressing room discussions,

over the years.  


Charlie’s wife, Beula, survives him and continues to reside at Carrington.
