Vale Guy Grinham

Guy Grinham

On the 13th Ocotber 2015 we lost a good friend, Guy Grinham.  Guy had been diagnosed with Cancer in 2014. 
He traveled to the Rugby World Cup to watch his beloved Wallabies play only when he contracted an infection.  With the help of many in the Rugby Family he was a guest at Australia v Wales, where childhood friend Adam Ashley-Cooper visited him post-match in a Twickenham box.
Guy with AAC
Guy was remembered on the 28th October at the Avoca Surf Club with a memorial service which filled the club.  In a day of sadness and laugher for a good mate, his impact on many people from all walks of life was evident.  
Guys funeral
All our love to Guy's wife Tennille, and children Charlie and Collette.  Sorely missed.


“Carve your name on hearts, not tombstones. A legacy is etched into the minds of others and the stories they share about you.”
