    Notes 
    • At two and a half years he lost one eye as a result of an accident with some broken glass. He never was the type to complain - perhaps umpires at Port Melbourne football matches would disagree. He was a talkative man of strong principles, comfortable and well received in any company. Having lost his father at fourteen, the responsibility of helping to provide for the family forced him to join the workforce. He loved motor cars and at sixteen was pleased to join the Olympic champion, Frank (later Sir Frank) Beaurepaire in his fledgling retreading company in Latrobe Street. From puncture boy he progressed with the company to become well-loved throughout Australia in the tyre retreading industry as a senior executive, and respected for his strength of character and practical ingenuity. He served in hte Australian Army as a medical orderly during World War 2. He dedicated his life to the Lord at 18 years of age and lived by his belief and served willingly in many congregations. After retirement, he devoted time to Community Aid Abroad, Meals on Wheels, and visiting the sick, frail and lonely.
