Strack had been battling with cancer since 2009 but unfortunately lost the fight this morning.
Barry was originally drawn to the club through his father Lloyd Strack who played for the Lions on either side of World War II. Strack started at the club as Colts manager in 1983 and worked tirelessly for the club up until 2014.
The club had a chat to Strack in 2014 following the announcement of his retirement.
“Although I won’t miss the early starts, I’ll miss the camaraderie of the people around me like the trainers, guys like Alby, Ron and Magic and definitely the players,"
Over the last four-five years they’ve been fantastic; they’ve known I’ve been in a bit of strife health-wise and the guys support has been tremendous.” Added Strack
