VALE Douglas McKenzie Boyle – 9th September 2017

I received this notification of Douglas’s Birthday on the 2nd November, 2017  from Facebook  but, when I logged in, there was a notification from his son Alex Boyle about the funeral service for Doug …

I worked with Douglas at Planet in Australia from 1970 to 1972 – He was a terrific bloke and a great character and I enjoyed his company very much … We shared a mutual love of Glenfiddich Scotch Whisky …
I’m sure he’ll be greatly missed and fondly remembered …

VALE CHRIS PEDERSEN – 1931-2017

Sadly, I report the passing away of Christian Peter Pedersen on the 1st of September, 2017 …

The Funeral Notice was published in the Sydney Morning Herald on the 6th September, 2017 …

His funeral was attended by ex-Planeteers David Hawley, Phil MacNamara, David Johnstone, John Crombie and Andy Marosszeky and also by Diane Cucvara, widow of Joseph Cucvara … A suitable toast to Chris was proposed with Scotch whisky following the service …

I have also prepared a PDF tribute to Chris which includes my photos of the funeral and pictures of Chris from Planet days and beyond …

VALE Joseph Cucvara – 1939-2017

It came as a shock to learn of Joseph’s passing on the 23rd March, 2017 after a short battle with a very virulent bile duct cancer …

The official Obituary was published in the Sydney Morning Herald on Monday, the 27th March …

Joseph’s funeral was held on Thursday, 30th March 2017 at the Northern Suburbs Memorial Gardens and Crematorium on a suitably grey, wet and windy day …

The love and esteem Joe was held in was indicated by the large turnout of family and friends who couldn’t all fit in the chapel for the service …

Six Planet colleagues/friends attended : David Hawley, David Johnstone and wife, Geoff Tassell and Wife, Geoff Sharrock and wife, Phil MacNamara and Myself …
(Phil didn’t stay for the Wake afterwards) …

I attach a tribute containing the funeral service schedule and some pictures I took at the Wake following the funeral …
