I was shocked to receive a call from Mary Orledge that a member of our goat fraternity, Rob Neske had passed away. Mary sent this message –
“Passed away December 2022 aged 75 years.
Rob was a member of Mohair Australia Ltd Tasmania Division between 2005 and 2020. He kept Angora goats as a hobby and was a regular attendee at shows, meetings and Judge’s Dinners. Rob was always a willing helper with setting up, stewarding, and holding goats in the judging line-up.
Farewell to a much-valued member of Mohair Tas.”
For Kerry and myself, we were very sad to hear of Rob’s passing as I am sure everyone else is. He was a quiet and reserved man who was there as a helping hand to anyone who needed it. Kerry remembers fondly Rob stepping in to help her with the barbecue and always standing on the sidelines for a chat. He was certainly one of life’s gentlemen. Deepest sympathies to his family and friends.
Some images of Rob, demonstrating his willingness to help wherever he could. RIP Rob.
