My Dad has been terminally ill for some time, and sadly, after a long battle, he passed away on Sunday morning. As a result, Marija and I canceled the remainder of our park activations and our trip, and we headed back to Adelaide.
Dad served with the South Australia Police between 1955-1992, and attained the rank of Sergeant. He also performed National Service with the Army and attained the rank of Sergeant.
Dad was awarded the National Medal, the Australian Police Medal, and the Australian Defence Medal for his service in both the Police and the Army.
Dad, you will be very sorely missed. We all love you very much.
