Being on the committee, he represented the club at the Altona Bay Basketball Association and was well respected by all.
If it wasn't for a determined gentleman like Mark, our club would not be here today.
On behalf of the Williamstown Cannons Club, we extend our condolences and our love and thoughts are with the Jennings family.
