Jim Molan’s Funeral

Update from the Class of 1971’s FB page:

“From The Weed.
Jim’s funeral service will be at 10 am next Wednesday 25 January at the RMC Chapel. It is to be a Military Funeral service. Anne has asked Roger Powell to deliver a “military” eulogy, following a family eulogy and to be followed by a political eulogy by Hon Peter Dutton, MP.”

More to follow as it comes to hand.

Vale DR Jim Burgess

Received news via the Class of 1973 that Dr Jim Burgess died last Wednesday 4 Jan. Jim was a lecturer in Geography at RMC and was also a member of the Rugby 1st XV in 1973 and possibly beyond.  He was apparently also well known amongst the Canberra Rugby community.

He had been ill for some time but steadfastly decided not to prolong his life and had elected not to have a funeral. A Memorial Service is on Friday 10 Feb at Duntroon Chapel followed by a reception at Duntroon House conducted by Tom Frame, former Anglican Bishop to the ADF. 

Could anyone who might wish to attend please let Chris Wallace know at wallaceclan3@bigpond.com

Kevin Hindle Update

A message from Kevin Hindle’s daughter Georgia, says in part: “I would like to extend an invitation to whoever from his class would like to attend his wake which will take place later this year either in the end of November or the beginning of December.” I will post further details as they come to hand.

14 April was a cold and windy day, but the sun shone through – somehow appropriate for Richard’s funeral. Although conducted in one of the chapels at the funeral home, it was not a religious service.

Richard very obviously had a lot to do in the preparation of his own funeral: there were items in the telling of his life journey that could only have come from him.
