Graham was a much respected and liked crew member of “ Jimmy Blacksmith “ sailing out of Royal Geelong Yacht Club ( G578 ) On behalf of past and present crew we send our condolences and love to Vicki and family. Thomo was the ‘ young one ‘ on board this highly successful yacht and his sudden passing is a shock to us all. We enjoyed his company and think very fondly about those years of racing and the off water celebrations. Rest In Peace Thomo ..gone to soon

Graham, we first met at T.S. Barwon. I then crewed for you on your cadet dinghy "panic". Later we crewed with and against each other on keel boats at R.G.Y.C. Fair winds and good sailing. Condolences to Vicki and Family. Gary

Dear Dear Vick, What a lovely service. I don't know how you did it but well done. You depicted Graham so well and showed just how much he meant to you and your family. Such a beautiful man. I feel that I know him more now than ever. I will never forget the beautiful message he wrote for me in my autograph book. Lots of love and never forget that I am right here for you, anytime.
