Luke Savage, Honorary School Archivist.
A kind and decent man with a gentle good humour and a brilliant mind. A devoted husband to his wife of 55 years Jean (dec), adored brother of Vic (dec) and brother in law of Denise, loving uncle to Prani, Sharna and Tamsin and ‘uncle in law’ to Shane, Wes and Jason, doting great uncle to Tara, Summer, Keeley, Indianna and Harper.
A pioneer in his professional field of nuclear physics, a lieutenant in the army, a keen lacrosse player, a lover of symphony orchestra and opera, a skilled builder, plumber carpenter and electrical engineer and a genius level mathematician, he maintained a quiet modesty about his many achievements and was the first to laugh at himself. We love you and are uplifted by our memories.
