61766 DAVID WILLIAM KIBBEY – 7 RAR 1970-71
I regret to inform you of the death of Dave Kibbey. Dave has been sick for some three years but in his “never give in” fashion, he fought until he finally succumbed on Christmas Eve.
Dave was OC 9 Platoon C Company 7RAR 1970-71, a former 7RAR Association President and Commanding Officer of 1 Recruit Training Battalion, Kapooka.
Dave was so full of energy, vitality and seemingly bulletproof that it’s hard to imagine him not being around. Rest In Peace Dave, you will be sadly missed by the 7RAR Family.
I would expect the funeral to be held in Canberra and with COVID running our lives, I don’t know if we will be able to attend. However, when I have confirmed details I will advise.
