Rest in peace
 
22 October 2009
A sad loss.  Tamworth lovable character "The Dancing Chicka" has passed away at 88yrs.
God bless you Chicka!    We will miss you so much.
 
Chicka was an ex-navy man and each year he would march on Anzac Day.
 
On 16th January surrounded by family and his many friends Chicka's ashes were spread from the Tamworth Lookout. A heartfelt poem written by Chicka's close friends and minders, Rhonda and Bruno, was read out and many soft tears were shed in the memory of a man who touched many with his gentle nature and appreciation of the music that we all go to Tamworth to enjoy. Rest easy Chicka, you were sadly missed
