R.I.P. - Lindsay Raymond Washusen - aka Woodford

  mikesyd Chief Commissioner

Woodford did warn us of this.


And the Herald Sun notices reveal that he died at Violet Town yesterday - 26 May 2019


The Funeral is at 11am on Wednesday at Violet Town Cemetery.


Woodford was of course famous for his contributions to this thread and its postcript.



I did not know Woodford, but did attend school in Benalla with his younger brother Russell.

RIP Woodford.

What a contributor woodford was! He had a lot of knowledge and a gentlemanly and forthright approach to any discussion.

I enjoyed debating things with him, and I will miss his input.

R.I.P Woodford - a lot of us will miss you.

Oh wow.  What a sad piece of news to log into this morning. This is the second person who I've interacted with on a forum (the other was not RP) who has died in the last 6 months and it is a little surreal.  Woodford was an educator to us all and will be irreplaceable.  His posts taught me so much.  Go well Lindsay. I hope you enjoy meeting up with Margaret again.  Bye mate.
