    God. I only saw Neil the other day. Sad news indeed. I didn't know him for very long, but he was a top guy. Thoughts go out to his family and friends.

    Thank you for acknowledging Neil. It's been a horrible day waiting for news after we heard he'd had a heart attack this morning.

    I haven't placed any mention online yet on our site/FaceBook etc, as I'm not sure Tracey and Bev are ready for me to. It means a lot to us that others will miss him, not just fellow WortHogs.

    Sarah, I'm sure there are a lot of folks around Melbourne that would want to attend a service & share a few (too many?) beers in Neil's honour when the time comes, as long as it's appropriate.

    Keep us posted, please.

    Yes, I will Martin. We've been trying to contact people as much as possible. I know there will be many who want to say goodbye.

    We've hastily gotten the newsletter out today and included this information in it to acknowledge Neil. At this stage, funeral arrangements are not yet known, but it's likely to be late in the week or next week. I will keep you updated.

    Sarah,
    Westgate are unable to provide a representative for the funeral. There are several club members going up to Canberra for the nationals and all of them leave Thursday morning , most notable amongst the group is Michael Bowron who served with Neil on the Vicbrew commitee. Please pass on our sincere condolence to the family.Please raise a glass on our behalf , in Neil's honour , at the wake.
    May he rest in peace.
