The daughter of David Wills has passed on  with the sad news that David passed away on Tuesday, 25th of August to his long time friend and work Colleague, Dagmar Perumal. They had worked at OTC in Martin Place and finally in Elizabeth Street. They kept in touch after his retirement from OTC/Telstra.

David’s son, Leonard, has also been in contact with me to pass on the sad news.

David’s Funeral Service will be held on Tuesday, 1st of September in Canberra.

David and his wife, Margret, had lived for many years in a retirement village although Margret had predeceased David.

A member of the family will provide the details of the service once the funeral arrangements have been finalised. The funeral service will be video streamed as attendance at the funeral will be limited due to COVID-19 restrictions.

May He Rest in Peace.

    David Wills was part of the OTC technical team sent to Hasler in Bern, Switzerland for the Telex exchange project, along with Brian Curran and myself (and three families) in the early 70s.

    Kind regards,
    Tony Stuart.
