Tributes Leave your tribute
Deepest sympathy to Marg & family from Thelma (Crilly) Cook & family; Beverley & Ron Schulz & family; Rosslyn Heaney & family; Rodney & Brenda Cook & family. Fond memories of Alan.
David Allen remembers Alan from student days at Burwood Teachers College in 1961-62, and met him by chance again in Wangaratta a year or two later. I was impressed – and not surprised – by the tribute in Saturday’s “Age”. He was a great bloke, with a fine sense of humour, and he clearly left a wonderful legacy. Condolences to the family.
Alan Crilly was indeed a great bloke . He will forever be remembered as the only male in a Teachers’ College trip to Perth amongst forty two females . The way he handled it made him legendary and much admired in his companion group. We reconnected in Hamilton Vic . and have followed the Crilly story ever since . Sincere sympathy to Marg and the family . (Hax ) Heather and Barry Docking
Our condolences to Marg, Prue ,Cameron and their families. Alan was a good sportsman with a great sense of humour and sense of community spirit among his many attributes.He will be sadly missed.
Deepest sympathy from Joe and Moira Higgins
