VALE John Dengate

The unforgettable and irreplaceable John Dengate sadly left us for the great gig in the sky on the 1st August 2013.

His lovely funeral and memorial service took place on Thursday 8 August 2013 at the Northern Suburbs Crematorium, North Ryde, followed by an afternoon tea. A rousing wake was then held in Glebe at the Friend In Hand Hotel.
