Vale Wayne Erskine - funeral details


Dear Australian Geographers


Last week we learned that the noted fluvial geomorphologist Professor Wayne Erskine had died at his home in Darwin.  A memorial was held for him in Darwin, but Dr Mike Saynor, Wayne's good friend and colleague, has now let us know that a funeral for Wayne will be held in Sydney on Monday 14th of August 2017 at Rookwood Memorial Gardens and Crematorium East Chapel Memorial Avenue, Rookwood at 11:15 AM.  


Following the funeral, a wake will be held at 'Village Functions at Rookwood'   (Corner of Memorial Avenue and Necropolis Avenue, Rookwood).  

Details for flowers and charities are still being worked out.  


Best regards
