Why is it that some of my favourite memories of Barwon Heads are of you and your stories, Brian? Rachel, Trav, Amanda, thank you for sharing your Dad. He was a genuine original. I can still picture him doing burnouts on the stony road to the BH Cricket Club in his ute back in the late 80s and singing Heartbreak Hotel into his trowel atop the scaffolding on a job in Albert Park circa 1997 - when I worked for him as a bricky's labourer. Legend. Master Bricklayer. Master Raconteur. Love ya, mate. Rest well.
