Earlier in the week I learnt of the sad passing of a good mate and a former top cop – Mark Bonavia (Bananas.)
He will be remembered for his great sense of humour, and his excellent driving skills that he put to good use in his many years of serving the community as a police officer attached to the legendary former E- District Highway Patrol (Ku- Ring Gai.)
Mark was a very kind and caring person with a heart, who in his job was a great and fair cop who would always go after the reckless hoons and drunk drivers and would always be reluctant to book the “working family man”, but rather give them a good talking to.
May his memory be an eternal blessing.
RIP brother !!

 


 

Mark started his HWP career at H District in the GIO Building in Marsden Street Parramatta.
He came to us from Castle Hill in 1988 along with Matthew Dickinson.
There are some funny stories that can be told of his shenanigans eg a siege at Ashfield Police Station.
His nickname was Bonn-A-Via.
I often wondered where he and his crazy sense of humour landed after his retirement.
