SES loses one of its best

On Sunday 13th September the SES lost one of its true heroes and many of us lost a good friend. Greg was out enjoying one of his many passions when his life was tragically cut short.

In his role as the Deputy Commissioner of SES I had the pleasure of getting to know Greg as a comrade and over time as a good friend. We shared some fun times together, like abseiling from a building in Martin Place, as a competitor in our Navrescue event and on many SES operations.
In a fitting tribute Greg was farewelled by almost 1000 family, friends and colleagues at St Andrews Cathedral in Canberra, the very place where Greg and Jenny were married.

Greg, you will be sorely missed. Rest in Peace.
