Vale - John "Snow" Larkin

It is with great sadness that I inform of the passing of CPOP John "Snow" Larkin. John was one of my dearest friends. He commissioned Vendetta, survived Voyager, then commissioned Hobart. He eventually paid off Diamantina. Snow then spent many years as an electrical engineer in the merchant marine. Most recently he was the president of the RSL here in Briagolong, where he was responsible for many large ventures, most notably the complete refurbishment of the local cenotaph. Also a valued member of the Fire brigade and Lions Club. He was awarded Briagolong citizen of the Year in 2012.  He was killed today (17th October 2013) when he toppled from a ladder in high winds.
I was RSL secretary to Snow's presidency for many years.
Words cannot express my grief.
Can you please pass on this message to wherever you think appropriate. We locally will do our utmost to support Anna.
I will provide funeral details to you.
Chris "Blue" Lawless (ex EMWR)
