  11. Our sympathy to Mavis and all the family.
    A life well lived.
    David was a life member of the Mirboo North & District Community Foundation because of his dedicated contribution to community based healthcare in Mirboo North over many many years.
    We often say that our organisation stands on the shoulders of those who went before, back to the 1930s.
    David was certainly one of those people.

    The Board and Members of the Community Foundation send their condolences.
