Lofty’s farewell

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

THE Biggen­den Show Hall and grounds will be full to the brim to­mor­row (Fri­day) as the life of one of the re­gion’s icons, Kevin “Lofty” Wendt OAM BEM, is re­mem­bered and cel­e­brated. The for­mer Viet­nam vet­eran and reg­i­men­tal sergeant ma­jor, coun­cil­lor and much-loved com­mu­nity mem­ber passed away on Jan­uary 27 af­ter a bat­tle with can­cer. He will be re­mem­bered at a mil­i­tary ser­vice start­ing at 11am. About 100 sol­diers from his 8/9 RAR will be in at­ten­dance. Ex­tra seat­ing and mar­quees have been pro­vided for the ex­pected in­flux of mourn­ers, but at­ten­dees who wish to be seated are asked to bring their own chair.

The ser­vice will be fol­lowed by in­tern­ment at the Degilbo Lawn Ceme­tery where var­i­ous or­gan­i­sa­tions, in­clud­ing the Biggen­den Rugby League Club, Biggen­den PCYC Cadets and Dal­larnil State School, will form a guard of hon­our.
