Geoff had been an inpatient at Coonamble Hospital, in the palliative care unit, after suffering a seizure during chemotherapy.
Singo was apparently a “tough old bastard” and it took “a lot to get the better of him” but he succumbed to his cancer – with his wife, Dot, by his side.
He was renowned amongst the policing troops as a “Champion bloke” and “bloody tough”
When he first turned up at Pilliga, one of the locals thought he was a drover and asked him where he had his herd.
Singo was a yarn teller and a bad singer.  He was a good poet and could roll a smoke one handed.
He was a good bushman.

Phillip Stephenson He was a legend in Coonamble.

 

Mal Unicomb RIP Singo. What a great character he was. A very dry wit and so many stories. Always amazed me how that tiny little bit of rolly cigarette stayed on his lip.
Michael McCulkin Thanks for the update John. RIP Singo, a legend in the true sense
