Mark was President of KHA from May 2002 until his resignation in January 2007. Prior to his presidency he served on the committee as Huts Maintenance Officer, Namadgi, and as an ordinary committee member. Mark passed away after a long illness, in 2009. In retrospect he was one of three key KHA Presidents who made a real difference and achieved a considerable amount for KHA, largely un-heralded.
My Mate - Bob Guy
For those who never met Bob, Bob was a quiet man who loved the mountains, music, poetry, theatre and people. Bob was a physiologist by trade but inside there was a musician who wanted to get out. Bob deeply loved his wife Sue and together they enjoyed living in Cootamundra with family and friends. Bob was also a member of the (KHA?) band which included Mike Paterson, Margaret Anderson and Murray Izzard and together really set the tone at KHA Gatherings.
Vale Noel Gough
Mark, Noel Gough's son, has informed us today 23 January 2010, that Noel Gough passed away quietly in his sleep in Melbourne this morning. Noel was reknowned as a tireless worker for KHA in particular on the Geehi Huts and will be remembered as a strong advocate for KHA and the SMA.
Phil is a long time KHA member and maintainer of mountain huts.
