Whenever I visited Port I would see Bob helping clear tables in the old social club,such an unassuming ,humble lovely man,my condolences to his family,R.I.P
I never met the man but I have heard similar good character descriptions of him. Everybody sayd how he was a real genuince nice old fashioned gentleman who was always humble - great qualities to have. Going to be a sad day at North Port oval tomorrow. May Bob rest in peace.

THE VFLS MOST SUCCESSFUL CLUB - THE MIGHTY PORT MELBOURNE BOROUGH!
I'M PORT MELBURNE BORN, I'M PORT MELBOURNE BRED, I'LL BE PORT UNTIL I'M DEAD!!!
A legend of the club and of the competition. Bob Bonnett will be sorely missed. Condolences to the family and his friends.
I'd heard he'd been crook for some months. Hopefully the club can pay tribute to him on Saturday.
Theirs been a last minute suggestion ( unofficially - by fans not the club ) that fans watch the game behind the Bob Bonnett end when Port is kicking that way. A few have confirmed that, thats what they will be doing.
