Today was a sad day. We said goodbye to a dear mate, and fellow NOB ( Narwee Old Boy  ), John ( Chuck) Sato. He was a much loved and life long friend to Greg Butto, Steve Stephen Dunstan ( Dunno), Geoff ( The Macca), Bruce ( Butchy) and Chris ( Hordy) Moore, who sadly went before him 2 years ago. He was also Much loved by the “Golden Boyz of Oz’s” wives and partners, Nola, Sharon, Lisa and many other good mates like Singo, Ian ( Fatty) and many more. Today was a reminder of good times, shared laughs and the importance of good friends in hard times. He was a fine, gentle man, with a good heart, strong faith, and a helping hand.
Our love and thoughts go out to his loyal and loving wife Joan Sato and his children Lily and Mike. He would have been so proud of you all today. He was honoured with a Police Funeral and a the Force did a wonderful job.
Godspeed, Chuck. 

 

Nicole Frank Rest in peace to your friend xx

Nola H Moore As always, Julie, you have put into words so elequently our thoughts. A lovely tribute. But, do you know, I believe he wasn’t actually a NOB but a friend of NOB. The boys can correct me if I’m wrong.
