Michael Hobbs (9.02.1934 - 1.02.2018); RIP

I was sad to hear the news about the death of another good friend, Michael Hobbs, in Sydney, Australia. There is an obituary in the Sydney Morning Herald:

Michael Hobbs, 9.02.1934 - 1.02.2018

"Much loved father of Katharine, Christopher, Neil and Andrew; grandfather of Lorren, Stephanie, Ben, Harry, Georgia, Donald, Matthew, Philip, Joshua and Phoebe; great grandfather of Michael, David, Zoe, Alexander, Tobias and Lincoln. Stepfather of Julia, Pickens and Elise; step grandfather of Ravi and Zachary.

Died suddenly while preparing oysters for friends on the early evening of February 1 at home in Woolloomooloo.

A great loss to the Sydney Art scene and people everywhere. An even greater loss to his family and friends.

All who knew him please come to St James Church, King St, at 10.30 am, FRIDAY (February 9th, 2018) for a Memorial Service, and after at The Union, University and Schools Club on Bent St at 12.30 pm.

With God giving, I gave.
