Don “the wallaby” Gillespie 1943 – 2007

We were saddened to hear of the sudden and unexpected death of Don Gillespie on the 23rd of August 2007.

Don was a unique personality who lived life to the full and injected fun into any activity he participated in. He will be missed in the square dancing community and especially his costumes, or lack there of.

A sunset ceremony was held at the SA Sea Rescue Squadron headquarters following the funeral, where two groups of square dancers danced to the music of “Light the Candles” in Don’s memory, and watched a slideshow of Don’s life.

Our thoughts are with Pam and Don’s family.
