VALE: Morris Glenn Dempster – RAE

Morris Glenn (Morrie) Dempster, 60 years of age, passed away on 27 March 2022 from renal failure. Morrie had been unwell for many years but battled hard to be there for his family. Over the last few months, Morrie’s health had deteriorated and sadly, he passed away peacefully in Townsville with his family by his side. Morrie had a full life and achieved many things; he was a well-respected soldier achieving the rank of Sergeant in the Royal Australian Artillery, business owner of Tandy electronic store, long-distance truck driver, Race Course Operations Manager and finally a Manager of a Defence Force Training Area. Morrie had made the decision that his quality of life was more important than quantity and decided to stop dialysis in order to pass away on his terms.

Funeral details TBA. Messages of condolences can be passed to Ian Kilgour [email protected]  or SMS to 0431 696 749  who will pass to the family.

RIP Morris Glenn Dempster
