Bill Edgar

From Bill’s son Bruce:

“It’s with respect and much sadness to say my 98 year old dad “Bill” passed away this afternoon after becoming ill 2 weeks ago. He put in a strong fight but couldn’t beat the odds this time. He will be missed but not forgotten. His favourite saying the past week was “day and night you pass me by but in the end I’ll get you”
He was joking and relaxed right to the end. Farewell and love to you always.”

“Thanks to everyone for your heartfelt messages and calls. Dad’s funeral will be on Wednesday 1st November, 11am at Broulee memorial Gardens. 195 Broulee Rd, Broulee”

“Do you still have contact with ANARE Club? If yes could you please let them know of Bill’s passing and funeral details. He loved telling stories about his time at Mawson and M.I. and how he was member 19 of ANARE. Cheers Bruce”
