While never an umpire on the VFL senior panel, Harold Macguire supported many members in his time in the VFL Reserve Grade Umpires Association as a goal umpire. Harold was made a life member of that association in 1976.
He was appointed to the 1976 VFL Under 19 Grand Final in his last game when there was a mandated retirement age for goal umpires. Harold leaves his wife Betty, two children, seven grand children and two great grand children.
Harold’s funeral will be held this Friday, 12 September at the Bunurong Crematorium. 790 Frankston Dandenong road (Bangholme) Dandenong South at 3.30pm.
