30th July 1946 – 21 March 2021
We are saddened by the loss of a great mate and well-respected volunteer. Brian volunteered at APRDA for over 12 years and only retired in September of 2020, he was our go to man who could fix anything and loved a mechanical challenge. Brian created many interesting innovations in the work shed, that all came with complex hand drawn diagrams, there were some great successes and the odd failure, but there is no doubt the work shed and being at Arundel park was Brian’s happy place. The maintenance crew looked at Brain as their leader, but he was always too modest for any formal recognition and was simply happy to get on with job and discuss the news of the day. We are all very privileged to have known Brian and to have shared many heartfelt moments, his legacy will always be etched in the grounds and memories of the APRDA community.
Brains family have generously offered that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Arundel Park Riding for Disabled Inc. We greatly appreciate their consideration during this difficult time.
For Donations please follow the link to our GIVE NOW donation page.
All donations will help fund a memorial tree and plaque in Brian’s honour along with much needed tools and equipment that will help and support the maintenance crew (Brian’s gang) at APRDA.
Lastly, Brian had a passion for poetry and we want to share a piece of his work with you.
