How long have you lived in Parkes and what do you like most about living here? I have lived in Parkes for the past 37 years. The friendly atmosphere and pace of the town is great.
Where do you work or what do you do currently and what do you enjoy about it? I have worked at ORIGIN LPG (previously WESTGAS) for the past 36 years. Best part of the job is getting out dealing with our many and varied customers and great bunch of blokes I work with. Plus nightfill at Woolies.
What is your favourite thing to do when you have free time? Dragon boating with the Parkes Endeavour Dragons – a truly top group of people.
What makes you proud? My three daughters and their achievements in life.
If you could be an animal which one would you choose, and why? Eagle, so I can soar high and look down from above.
What is your all-time favourite movie, song and/or book, and why? The Castle, a truly Australian classic about life in general; any music by David Bowie and Animal Farm by George Orwell, which was my Year 12 text.
Tell us about your best holiday. Ten days exploring Perth with my late wife Lynne.
What is on your bucket list? Live long to annoy my daughters and grandchildren; ride the Indian Pacific; make an awesome home garden; restore an old car (I don’t hold a driver’s licence) and dragon boat in China.
