A jeweller who ran a business in the main street for many years, Don was an early advocate of adult education in Benalla and a very committed member of the U3A Music Appreciation group.
In latter years Don became the carer of his wife, Lois, who shared his love of classical music. Don’s devotion to Lois was exemplified in the care he took in negotiating ramps and other obstacles to bring her to W4 in her wheelchair each fortnight, enabling them to continue to share and enjoy classical music sessions together and with us.
A highly respected man and member of local service groups, Don’s funeral filled the Uniting Church to overflowing.
We would like to extend our deepest sympathy to Lois.
