    So sad to hear of Phillip’s passing. I lived next door to him and his parents for many years at Mount Macedon.
    He will be surely missed.

  3. Mike Waters says:

    Everything you would want in a friend..sensible advice, a wonderfully understated sense of humour, a staunch magpie fan and a lover of Irish music.
    As one of his golf mates commented “A gentleman and a gentle man”.
    A privilege to share part of my life with Phil Rowe.

    From a likely lad with a 1932 Ford Roadster in his youth to a respected school leader, a loving father and a generous, gentle friend.
    Always remembered

    Phil was a great bloke. He was always friendly and generous. He was truly a great special educator, no matter what role he took on.
    It’s so sad he’s gone. My thoughts are with his family.
