    Very sad news on passing of our good Army mate Neil & his wife Rouna. Neil was a RAEME stalwart for many years. He made Captain & was OC 15 Transport Squadron Workshop. He was a mad keen ballroom dancer & ceased dances all over the state. He went to Kokoda twice with Rotary in 1996 & 1998 and to Dili east Timor in 2002.
    Rest easy cobber.

    Sad news. Worked with Neil for 10 years at Mt. Alexander Hospital where he was the Safety Officer and I was HR Coordinator. We pushed hard for health and safety reforms and achieved some excellent outcomes. Neil was a committed and hard worker always ready to help anytime and anywhere, and didn’t let too much phase him, always friendly, courteous, rushing around helping everyone and with a good sense of humour. RIP Neil and Rouna.

    Neil, we only knew you for 5 years and we wish we knew you for 55 years. Although, it only took 5 minutes to realize you were the Real Deal. Kind, caring, considerate and above all, giving! We would meet Rouna at our social events, but it was your love and words that educated us of your family. Your support and effort in our early days will be cherished in our history and not forgotten.
    Condolences to the family.
