I was advised of John’s passing and after searching The Age newspaper I located the tribute to our Honorary Member B.R.(John) York who passed away on 22/10/2020 at the age of 89.
YORK Bernard Roy
Sandra, Katherine, Peter and Richard honour the peaceful passing of Bernard on October 22nd in Kew.
Born in Northampton, England on 10th July 1931, he moved to New Zealand in 1955 and later Melbourne in 1971 to pursue a lifelong career in banking with the ANZ Bank.
His kindness, dignity, intellect and immense integrity will be eternally missed by all his family including Cameron, Michele, Siri, Nicholas and grand-children Caroline, James, Kirin, Archer and great granddaughter Arabella. Deeply missed and always in our hearts.
Our condolences are extended to John's family.
Sadly, I received a call from Pat Milnthorpe this morning to say that Dick passed away peacefully at home yesterday after being diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer in September. Dick had recently clelebrated his 88th birthday.
We managed to complete Dick's story of his career in IT at ANZ earlier this month.
Below is a link to the story.
Dick made an enormous contribution to the growth of Technology at ANZ and will be missed.
I was very fortunate to accompany Dick to the USA in 1976/77 to set up the offices in New York and Los Angeles.
The message below was received from Dick one week ago and shows that he kept his sense of humour to the end..
''Just to say thanks to you all who have written, I see Bob sees us meeting ‘down there’ and guess, he is probably right, we wouldn’t want to go to a place where none of our friends were, and Alan is probably running it now ! (And giving Will a hard time).
Anyway, I’m comfortable, I’ve had a good.run, and never broke the 11th Commandment !
It was a privilege to work alongside you all.
Yours with great affection,
Our deepest condolences are sent to Pat and her family.
