    "Percy Ronald Gartner" 1921-2015


    He was taken to Emergency only an hour and a bit earlier and I was unable to get to the hospital in time from Canberra.


    Mum and Dad celebrated their 70th Wedding anniversary in 2014 and this article from the BorderMail tells that story and tells of his life far better than I can ever hope to at this time.
    http://www.bordermail.com.au/story/2228511/betty-and-percy-gartners-love-endures-for-70-years/


    He will forever be known in Moruya as "Perce the Postie"


    May you, dad, rest in peace.


    Phil
