Please accept my sincere sympathy. I have fond memories of Damian at Chanel College in 1969. Damian was a highly regarded and deeply respected school captain. I remember his very keen since of humor (he certainly knew how to tell a good story!!!) Rest in Peace Damian.

Hi Carmel, I was sorry to read of Damian’s death. I remember him being very charming and dropping you off at school every morning before you got your licence - was it in a VW or was that your car. I think that he was school captain at Chanel and remember him being involved with their formal. I am sure that you and Annette will miss him. Thinking of you, Mary

My thoughts are with all the family. I felt so lucky to be able to get to know Damian. He often shared his love for his mother with me who was also cared for by the Kalkee family at Nangatta. I will miss Damian cheeky sense of humour. He always had a smile for me and we shared many jokes and good times together. He was so generous, often buying residents and staff the good sponges from the Freshwater Creek bakery. He will be missed by all the residents and staff at Kalkee Murray.

Hi Carmie, Yes, I still remember your family nickname after all these years. I also remember the VW with the faded blue paintwork and the pink replacement mudguard courtesy of Nette's indiscretion. I can also recall tripping along the coast with Damian in the MG Midget and of him pulling over to tackle an unfortunate snake which crossed our path ( the snake got away), and of the welcoming into your family during our teenage years. Having lost track of many Chanel oldies I was quite shocked to hear the sad news of Damian's passing. I hope he was happy in his life and while I cant attend his "life celebration please accept my sympathy for a lovely man gone far to soon. I trust life has been good to you as well and hope that this time of sadness will soon be replaced with the fondest of memories. Take care, Jim Liston Jim liston

I first met Damian in 1962 and we became friends. I was a boarder at Chanel and he and his family welcomed me into their home. I have fond memories of our years at school and times at the Norlane Police Station residence and in later years at the Geelong home. We lost contact and then reconnected several times over the years, in Geelong, Sydney and university years and more recently after Allie's death. I always enjoyed reconnecting but this time had to come. I'll miss Damian, my old friend.

Dear Damian, Sorry I can’t be there with Netta, Carmel and Michael to say goodbye to you....but I’ll be playing Patti Smith’s “Because the Night” in memory of the good times we enjoyed together. Many thanks for sharing your home with me during my early days in Sydney, and for your cheerful support later when times got a little difficult for me. Sorry about all the sultanas I left at the bottom of the muesli box; we had a good night at the Bob Dylan concert, didn’t we? Farewell, Damian, with memories of your uplifting smile. Barbara
