5717724 Ronald Cecil Clarke – RAE
From John Sahariv
Please be advised that Ron Clarke passed away peacefully in his sleep yesterday.
Condolences to his wife Shirley, Family and friends, a young life taken to soon, and nothing surer than he will be watching over you and the Family Shirly; he will let you know in one way or another that he is near.
Having served with Ron during the withdrawal phase of Australia’s participation in the Vietnam War, I found him to be a Soldier of high values, dedicated in his taskings and the purveyor of good humour and never shy to question if a job could be better accomplished in another way than instructed. He was invariably right on most occasions.
Rest in Peace young fellow, you have left your mark on many in this place.
Thanks to both Mick Salienko and Harry Walker for passing this information on.
