Jim Girven

We regret to say that Jim died in his sleep.

Jim had been a member of Phoenix since 1992 (over a quarter of a century ago)  and despite occasional bouts of ill-health, he was still shooting with us quite regularly. He last shot with us in September at the Sheepshed when he was in excellent spirits and looking forward to the next shoot – sadly that was not to be.

A  real gentleman – we will miss him greatly.

His funeral was at Landican Crematorium, South Chapel at 11.30 Friday 2nd November 2018.

Ron Seddon – the “Purple Plume”

As most of you know, Ron died earlier this year

A great character and one of the longest serving members of Phoenix. Ron had been ill for some time, but this doesn’t make it any easier for his family, Richard Seddon, or us.

Ron was truly a friend and always good fun to be around. We didn’t get to see him much in the last year or so as he had problems which precluded his rejoining us – by his own choice – very sadly. We miss him.

The funeral was  20th February at Landican, and was well attended by many members of Phoenix.
