Sadly another former member of the RAN has left us. A seemingly tough way to exit.

Hello Bob,

It is with heavy heart that I advise the passing on Tuesday 22nd September of my year mate Dick Power. We joined the Navy on the same day, 25th January 1965.

He was diagnosed with lung cancer in July ,and by then it had spread to his brain, some lymph nodes and hip.

He passed quietly at Fiona Stanley Hospital, Perth

He is survived by his two daughters and two sons.

Details of the funeral are not yet known.

Would you please pass to ALCON.
