Brian’s daughter, Sarah, has passed on the sad news that Brian Brennan, who worked as a computer programmer at OTC at both the Broadway and Paddington terminals from 1971 until it merged with Telecom into AOTC in 1992, died early last week.

The funeral is arranged for the Wednesday the 18th of October at Guardian Funeral Chapel (Cnr of Sunnyholt Rd and First Avenue) at 10:30 am.

In preparing for the funeral Sarah found this photo which she thought might appreciate to identify Brian and use in this email. It was taken at the Official Closing of the MRSC at Paddington in May 1988. Brian is in the ‘man in the middle’. with John Wall (Interplex Operator) on the right hand side of the picture.

    Very sad to hear that Peter.

    Brian and I worked closely in both the MRSC and the BWY ISTC.

    He was a very good programmer and a terrific bloke to boot.

    If anyone is in touch with Jenny Spells, another programmer, I am sure she would like to know too.

    I can’t attend the funeral.

    This is very sad news and very hard to believe.
    I knew Brian very well and had worked with him.
    He was very softly spoken and a true gentleman.
    May he RIP.

    Sorry to hear about Brian Brennan

    I worked with him at Broadway where he was a programmer for the “Interplex” System.

    I shared many a beer with him at the Broadway Hotel.

    The younger guy in the picture is John Wall who was an Operator for Interplex.
