Vale  Andrew McLaughlin

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Andrew Mc Laughlin aged 51 years at the Lyell McEwin Hospital at Elizabeth in South Australia on 16th October 2012 after a major, courageous battle with cancer for 2 1/2 years.

Andy was a Casey 2000 Winter Electrician and he also took on extra responsibility as  the Deputy Fire Captain and the Post Master.

Antarctica had been a dream for Andy for many years and he was very enthusiastic about all aspects of station life. He was a warm and friendly expeditioner who liked to socialise but most of all he loved to get out into the field away from the warmth and modernity of the Casey Red Shed!

Our thoughts are with his wife Liz and two children Sean and Erin in South Australia and his parents Ken and Jan in Tasmania.
