Vale - Douglas Hockly 8-Jan-2021 At 12:03:37 PM Wendy
You may have heard over the past few years that Douglas had become increasingly disabled by a degenerative brain disease. He had been living most of last year with full time carers. He became unexpectedly ill over the xmas period and chose to have palliative care over active treatment, dying peacefully with his mother and sister at his side on Wednesday. He will be coming home to be buried in the climber's corner of Nati Cemetery.

Douglas organised an early wake last January whilst he was still able to travel and see his community for what we expected to be the final time, and it was. The hall was packed with people celebrating his life. We joked about how if there was life after death, he would have to come back and haunt me to let me know. I'll let you know if he turns up.
