Roy Thomas William WAKERELL Notice
WAKERELL, Roy Thomas William: Passed away peacefully at Elliston Hospital on January 31, 2019 Aged 80 years Roy, the Old Pommy Butler who served Governors in Adelaide and Hobart, waited on the Queen in '54, the Queen Mother in '58, and the whole Royal family in '70, came to Lincoln in the early 70's and got a job at the silos. Roy loved the change of work; over the next 22 years until his retirement he made many friends. After retirement those friendships endured, and new ones began. Many knew him as the tall man with the golf stick collecting golf balls. Sadly Roy's life changed, as a long growing brain tumour gradually took his stride to a bent over shuffle and stole his memory. A special thanks to Roy's latest friends, the caring Dr's, staff and residents of the Pines Hostel Elliston, his home for the past year. Roy will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
