  5. So very sad to hear of Wompy’s passing. Spent many years partnering him in various Victorian junior tennis team championships! Such a great team mate with a coolness and sense of humour like no other! After leaving our teens we, sadly, never got to catch up again but the memories were (and still are) often rekindled! Those days were so precious! Deepest sympathies to all Wompy’s family and may he forever now rest in peace! xx💔🌹

  14. Robbie was a great bloke, (despite being stubborn and a Geelong supporter). After 50 years, though we were separated by time and distance, he remained one of my closest friends.
    Our thoughts are with you Sue and family.

  16. Dear Sue my thoughts are with you and all the family at this time of loss . Robert met all the challenges to his health over the past decade with outstanding fortitude and courage and lived life to his best ability . And to quote Robert in conversation when I visited some years ago . He praised you Sue for your constant support and determination as without you he believed his life would have been lost earlier
