We are sad to learn of the passing of Nilo Falcini who died on 5 November 2020, aged 82.
Nilo joined Penguin in the 1970s and, while his son played in our junior team, Nilo was a first class goalkeeper and mainstay for our men’s second water polo team. His fellow teammates recall that he was very well-liked, always dependable, generous and kind to all.
Nilo was Club Captain in 1984, and won the Rob Derbyshire Trophy in 1991 and 2006 in recognition of the credit he had brought to the Club.
Nilo served on the Penguin Committee for many years with a stint as Club Treasurer from 2009-12.
Even when he moved to Devon in 2012 he retained his connection with the Club as the Auditor for our accounts until the start of this year. He was a Penguin Vice President and Life Member.
Our condolences to Nilo’s partner Ruth and his family.
