We were very sad to here of the passing of two of
our members: Don Breeze and John Phillip Wilson passing.
Don had a brave and long battle with his illness
and was very cheerful up to the finish. Up until about 2 months ago
I would see Don at the City Bowling Club and he was always in good
spirits and hopeful.
John reached the rank of Chief Superintendent and
retired to Dubbo at the completion of his service. John was highly
respected and was a quiet, unassuming man. He was a regular attendee
at our meetings with his partner Jean, until his health
deteriorated. Many of our members attended both funerals and guards
of honour were formed as a mark of respect.
I can report with authority that Col Selwood is
100% fit, suffering no illness and still able to run the bar at
Orana Gardens Retirement Village. He was very amused when I rang to
enquire after his health and couldn’t stop laughing when I told him
of the rumour that he was reported to be not very well.
