John Morrison has provided the sad news of the passing of Trevor Pike.


Noticed Trevor’s name in today’s obits. He apparently passed away on 26th September, no other info was listed.

I had a Christmas card from him in 2019 which he said in part,


“have been in and out of hospital most of 2019 and will be glad to see the end of 2019. I’ve been undergoing chemo and radiation therapy, after having a whipples operation in Canberra for pancreatic cancer.  I’ve lost the pancreas, spleen, gall bladder and other bits and pieces as well as 15kg in weight. Will find out the results early next year”


He then said would be in touch when/if he got to Sydney – unfortunately he never contacted me. It sounds like his last couple of years would have not been pleasant.


John  recalls that Trevor was a member of the Vets, at least at one stage. John remembers going to a vets outing at the Mandarin Club in Goulburn Street with him.


That would have been at least 20 years ago as that was about when Keith McCredden encouraged Col Kelly and me to join the Vets.


If you have any Tributes and/or memories of Trevor that you would like to share with other Vets and for upload to the OTVA web site please email them to me.


May He Rest In Peace

    Trevor was ex navy and loved going to Wagga – travelled down there quite a few times with Chris Weekes and myself.

    He represented Sydney as a Tennis player, I don’t remember him being a cricketer but he could have been.

    I am sure others from his SOR days can add a few antidotes from their memories of Trevor

    Very sad news. Trevor and I were on the install team for Moree 2 in 1982. He was a top bloke and really made the team gel. We discovered that we both shared the same birthday; 3 March, and every time my birthday rolls around I think of him.

    Hopefully others will be able to dredge up some good memories too. Maybe even some photographs?
