The Association has been advised of the passing of Col Spence on 23 October 2014. 

His son, Greg, advises that his father passed on peacefully in the presence of family.

The funeral was held on the 1st November 2017 at the Heritage Bros, Chapel, West Burleigh Road.  

Col was a great supporter of QLD Division, and a lot of us enjoyed the times spent at the resort in Noosaville as guests of him and his son. Lots of laughs!

Col contributed to “Flying Stations”, the journal of the Australian Navy Aircraft Handlers, in the second quarter of 2010.  It is reproduced below as it gives a great account of his life and times.
