This is to announce that our dear friend John Lane passed away recently at his home in Mandurah. John was a champion of Fairbridge, an ex-Fairbridge boy who served the OFA later in life oh so faithfully, and then benefactor in building the replica boy’s cottage, Rosa Nobes. Please see the obituary (press cuttings) so well written by Torrance Mendez and Jan Churchill. A finer gentleman you could not find. We will miss you dearly, John.
