With heavy heart I wish to advise the passing of former Sergeant John G FLICK Reg,No. 15335 and a graduate of class 131 on Friday 23/6/7.
Flicky was born on 22/7/49 and spent his younger years at Casino where he was more than a handy footballer.
On joining the Police he was attached to Darlinghurst and later four wheels and had a few games of football with Penrith.
In latter years he suffered with heart problems and leukaemia and moved to Evans Heads after being flooded out at Casino.
He recently had what was believed to be a successful heart operation but unfortunately he succumbed to the Leukemia on 3rd December 2023.
A memorial service for John is scheduled for 12md on Thursday 14 December 2023 at the Evans Head Surf Club.
John FLICK may you RIP.

A top bloke gone too soon. As the Flickman often said “It must be someone’s shout for a Red Mill Rum.” John has hung up his cue now and is relaxing somewhere with a pint of lager, Cheers John, we all miss you. !!
