Colleen Mary Bingham nee Daley was born 20-02-1937 to 25-02-201.
Joe & Colleen met in Wollongong whilst Joe was a Constable, stationed there.
Ted Collins: Big man. Loved a schooner or two. Traffic Sgt at Campsie for many years rest in peace . Great memories.
Barry Jones: Joe helped me with my first departmental over some shitty complaint. That night at Bankstown he showed me the power of the written report. His response was a pure work of art. The only thing missing was the words ……”Once Upon A Time” at the beginning. I still have that Roget’s Thesaurus he convinced me to buy in 1977 sitting on my desk. The other thing I remember about Joe was his stand up blues with Tom Gerdes, now they were different. Going to miss you big fella.
