Date of Passing:


John passed away on Tuesday night 03 August 2021, after having various medical issues over the last 2 years or so. John joined Qantas as a Junior Commercial Trainee (JCT) on 06 January 1964. On graduating from the Scheme some 2 years later, he moved into the Property Department. John spent his career in various roles in the Property Department, both in Australia and overseas. He retired from Qantas on 09 June 2004 after 40 years of great service. Many of you will fondly remember John as the man from Property who could help you with all your Property issues. John recently made a tremendous effort to attend the JCT Reunion on 17 March 2021, albeit wheelchair bound, and it was a delight to catch up with him at that time. I hope those of you also in attendance took the opportunity to have a drink and a chat with John. Chris Kewley
