Nick was a founding member of the Newham District Landcare Group from its beginnings in 2004, along with his beloved wife Sue. Nick accepted a committee position in 2006 and served as President from 2015 through to 2018. He also had continued to serve on committee since 2018. During this time Nick was responsible for helping to source and administer grant funding, along with newsletter items for many years. His impeccable rainfall records have been features of our newsletter since 2015. Nick was always an active participant in our Roadside Management Group. He was also a great advocate for Clean Up Australia Day, organising us all to participate every year in Newham. Nick was also a committee member of the Newham Hall. Mate, your infectious smile, good humour and hard work which you gave at every event and working bee will be sorely missed by us all. We raise a glass of red to you Nick. Rest in peace.

Dear Nick, we are going to miss you my dear brother. You are a giant in my view; not only your integrity and sense of fair play but the huge huge contribution you made to the project management profession over decades and decades. I am immensity sad that I won't see you to tell you personally how I feel, but I sense that you always knew the respect I and others had for you. You are a unique humble person with a giant's soul. We love and will miss your humor and bright spirit. I know your family will be suffering your enormous loss, I can only imagine the sadness they must feel. I pray that God blesses and gives rest to your beautiful soul. You have my love and best wishes on your journey home to the Father. You will always be with us; you are part of our journey.

Nick's passing, although one of the more pessimistic prognoses of his condition, came as a shock and a great sadness to us. As my younger brother he was always the steady one, the one who didn't take risks, the one who considered every move. The one who gave up smoking when he was 13, because of the risks! This conservatism made his decision to fly off to the other side of the world more of a surprise, but it shows how strong was his love for Sue. Since then meetings have been few, but always enjoyable, and I still can't get my mind around the fact that I won't see him again on one of his European tours. Our love and thoughts are with Sue.

Dearest Nick, We are desperately sad. We are going to miss you so very much. We would see you and Sue roughly every two years, when you both would come and stay with my parents, on your travels to England. Even though those two years had passed; when you both walked through the door it was as if you’d never been away. The laughter would start immediately, and the conversation never stopped. We have been honored to have you in our lives. You brought such fun, quick wit, generosity, kindness and love into our home. You have been and will always be our family. We hope you know how very much loved you are, and we will miss you for the rest of our lives. Sending our love to Sue. Her sadness and pain must be immeasurable, we wish we could be there. Even though we are separated by more than ten thousand miles, we hope that Sue can seek some comfort from the very many kind words of those who love you. We love you both very much. You’ll be forever in our hearts, Nick. Love, Jeanne and Little P xx

Nick was a Fellow of the AIPM, Vice-President of the Victorian Chapter, national Congress member, and passionate contributor to the project community especially through the mentorship program which Nick ran in Victoria. AIPM is looking to publish a tribute in its next magazine, commemorating Nick’s contributions. Sincere condolences on behalf of the Victorian Chapter of AIPM, Chris Latcham, President I also share the following thoughts from those who worked with Nick and haven’t already left a message. Michael Ratcliffe – Past President, AIPM Victorian Chapter I am still in shock. As others have noted, Nick was a fine person and a great contributor to AIPM over a very long period. He had many qualities and his passing is sad loss. Rob Loader – Past Vice President AIPM Victorian Chapter So sorry to hear that. One of the true gentlemen. Gary Yorke – Past Director, Councillor AIPM Victorian Chapter Really sad news. He was a real gentleman. He always lightened up the council meetings and events with his stories, humour and observations. He'll be missed by many I'm sure. Trevor Alex – Past President AIPM Victorian Chapter That is truly sad news. He was such a joyful man. Truly a sad day for all and great loss to the AIPM fellowship . Connie Beck – Past President AIPM Victorian Chapter Oh dear that is so sad. This type of news reminds us life is precious and short.

I worked with Nick for over 10 years in his capacity as a Committee member and then Vice President of the Victorian Chapter Council of the Australian Institute of Project Management. A true gentleman who was passionate about his involvement and contribution to the AIPM. Rest in Peace. Read full message here.

My most sincere sympathy to Nicks family. We were colleagues at MRSC for his entire time there. Nick was always friendly, always helpful and always a gentleman. He did so much for the hamlet of Newham and will be very sadly missed by all who knew him. . Read full message here.

Nick, We are going to miss the friendship, good humour and generosity you always brought to our irregular get togethers on either side of the world. The memories seem so fresh....you introducing two year old Alex to Cricket at the MCG, looking after me when I finally made it to Melbourne after getting sick in NZ, biting our nails together in the final overs of the Edgbaston test in 2005, consoling us over the loss of dear Jan, and more recently being the unseen support for Lou on her stay in Melbourne. You and Sue always seemed to be there for the important stuff in our lives. You’ll always be in our hearts. Simon, Alex and Lou Read full message here.

Nick was a Fellow of the AIPM, Vice-President of the Victorian Chapter, national Congress member, and passionate contributor to the project community especially through the mentorship program which Nick ran in Victoria. AIPM is looking to publish a tribute in its next magazine, commemorating Nick’s contributions. Sincere condolences on behalf of the Victorian Chapter of AIPM, Chris Latcham, President I also share the following thoughts from those who worked with Nick and haven’t already left a message. Michael Ratcliffe – Past President, AIPM Victorian Chapter I am still in shock. As others have noted, Nick was a fine person and a great contributor to AIPM over a very long period. He had many qualities and his passing is sad loss. Rob Loader – Past Vice President AIPM Victorian Chapter So sorry to hear that. One of the true gentlemen. Gary Yorke – Past Director, Councillor AIPM Victorian Chapter Really sad news. He was a real gentleman. He always lightened up the council meetings and events with his stories, humour and observations. He'll be missed by many I'm sure. Trevor Alex – Past President AIPM Victorian Chapter That is truly sad news. He was such a joyful man. Truly a sad day for all and great loss to the AIPM fellowship . Connie Beck – Past President AIPM Victorian Chapter Oh dear that is so sad. This type of news reminds us life is precious and short. Read full message here.

Nick really was one of the people who made Newham such a warm and welcoming village for new residents such as us several years ago. We admired his knowledge, energy and tenacity in tackling all the important matters of Newham, Hanging Rock and the Macedon Ranges Shire. We will miss Nick very much, and send all our love to Sue at this difficult time. Natasha, Rob and Miranda. Read full message here.
