Remembering Sam Watson

Sunday 8 December 2019

With sadness I mark the passing of Uncle Sam Watson, and re­mem­ber how much and how often he contributed to the life of my local community. At Musgrave Park, in Boundary Street, at Avid Reader, at the Kurilpa Library, there he was, with fire in his belly, empathy in his heart, and perceptive things to say. I’ll miss him.
