  1. Barry Cronin
    1936 – 2020

    It is with great sadness that we have heard of the passing of Barry Cronin.
    We are members of a group who shared his Primary School days at the Vogeltown School from 1941 to 1950.
    We were fortunate enough to be taught by an outstanding team of teachers who were dedicated to our individual education from Primer 1 to Standard 6 (Form 3).

    Barry was a valued member during our School days and there are lots of memories of his participation in the daily life of our school.
    His performance in our school cricket team was always welcomed and his skill using our pick axe handled cricket bats was legendary.

    Barry was a keen participant in our reunions and his smiling face welcoming us all on these occasions will be missed.

    Our sincere condolences go out to his family and friends – it is not an easy time but the support of each other will see you all through.

    All members of the “Class of 1941” Group.

    My thoughts are with you during this sad time.
    Sorry I couldn’t make it down there with Judy.
    I watched the live stream of the service & it was a lovely tribute to a man with an infectious smile
    With deepest sympathy
