PEATFIELD                           A.R.D.(ROBIN)                   77 YEARS                             14/05/2022


From Ron Adams

Sue Peatfield phoned to advise of the passing of husband Robin aged 77 years on 14/05/2022 after struggling with a severe chest infection. Robin was well known to many ANZ’ers spending time in London and Melbourne where I used to often see him at the ANZ functions. Robin and Sue left the bank and moved to South Gippsland  to become  dairy farmers until they returned to Mount Martha to be with family. Robin had a quick mind and a dry wit. He will be missed.


Very sad news ….Sue said there would not be a funeral but a celebration of his life will be held at Wildgrain Restaurant on 24th May from 12noon. (Wildgrain address is 1 Blamey Place, Mornington 3031)


Our deep condolences are extended to Sue and her family

Vale Jack Stewart Respected Honorary Member of ANZROC Victoria aged 86

Andree Stewart-Speeddaughter of our Honorary Member Jack Stewart  emailed “I am very sad to advise that my dear father Jack passed away peacefully at home on 19 March 2022 aged 86 years.

He loved his career at ANZ which spanned 39 years starting out at the age of 16 he loved work and made many  friends. We had a great photo of the Staff at the 350 Collins street Stock Exchange branch at the service .

He also had a great time as relieving officer in country Victoria for a period and often helped out when needed for other duties.

It was funny to hear some of the things he did such as;

  • putting on the footy boots for Katamatite when they were a player short
  • serving behind the bar at a pub where he was staying when the barman called in sick
  • playing the drums one night when the band member couldn’t make it

He was a great sportsman playing, cricket, football, and athletics and was a life member at Mulgrave Football Club.

Jack  also did his  National service in the Australian Navy  at age 18  for 6 months.

He enjoyed reading the newsletters and seeing familiar names. On a personal note for me I worked at ANZ for  12 years and I also fondly remember some of the names I read in the newsletters.

Phil Dunstan was my first manager and I fondly remember.

Paul McKernan, Roy Sloggett, Dieter Telburn, and Stephen Green.”

Our condolences are extended to Andree and her family
