A close friend confided that Richard had been diagnosed with early-onset dementia. He seemed fine and in good spirits but sadly this terrible scourge carried Neville off earlier this month at age 74.
It's a shame we couldn't make the memorial last Saturday morning for Richard at The Wharf but Sydney's chronicler of personalities, photographer William Yang was there:

The event at the Wharf was a true TRIBAL GATHERING, touched with sadness and celebration, and memorable because of the speeches.
