Vale - Frank 'Bud' Howard


It is with great sadness we announce the passing of former premiership player Frank "Bud" Howard.


Bud played for Altona Rovers in 1947 and joined the Altona Senior ranks in 1948. 


Bud was a member of the 1951 Premiership team and played in the numerous final sides of the early 50's. 


Bud's sons, Frank Jr (Dec) and Mick were also players for Altona, Mick being a former President and Life Member. 


Our condolences to the Howard family. As a mark of respect to Bud and your family, our boys will wear black armbands this Saturday.


A memorial service for Bud will be held at 1pm this Friday, 16 June at the Altona Bowling Club, 113 Civic Parade Altona.


Rest in Peace
