Vale – 5794 MAJ Geoffrey John Hawker (Rtd)
Our Corps lost another legend, Major Geoffrey John Hawker (ret’d).
Geoff was a 1st class Appy whose hand I was proud to shake on ANZAC Day 2018 when over 700 Appys of all eras gathered at the Australian War Memorial for the School’s 70th anniversary. He was one of the gentlemen who laid the foundations upon which all tradesmen who followed stand.
Geoff had numerous other postings during his career, including as the ASM of Metal Trades Wing at AAS. He was highly-respected in all roles.
Geoff’s wife, Margaret, advised that he passed away at Epworth Eastern Hospital in Melbourne.
Funeral details will be promulgated when known.
Stand down, Geoff. Your duty is done
Arte et Marte
Rest in Peace
