    SAC. On the 15th of May 2020 (aged 98) former leader of the Australian Pallottines, (1969-1975) passed away after a short illness. Joe was a Pallottine for 78 years and a priest for 73 years. Much loved by his Confreres and a tireless worker in all he did, particularly in the Kimberley Region.

    A real gentle man and gentleman. He had an open positive attitude and was always interested in extending himself through learning and developing new skills. In Heaven he will rest.
