To Liz, Greg, Ruby, Lily and Zeb, our thoughts are with you at this sad times. I know you will miss him but always treasure the memories you have they never go away. Love Heather and Mike Green
I have great memories of Henderson Motors days, where two of my older sisters and myself worked. Mick would share coffee and scones with Jock Johnstone (Mr Ryan and Mr Johnstone to me at 16!) most mornings while they solved the world’s problems. Good times.

Special Memories of Uncle Mick in the 70’s at Fulton Street.
Sunday afternoons at the Ryans – a very late roast lunch, Mick’s big beige leather chair (in front of the BW telly) , hydration of choice via a long necked brown bottle, footy replays on loop and when it was Bathurst – it was loud and we had to barrack for the Mazdas!
Add to this – Aunty Lois making a delicious steam pudding for dessert.
Mick cutting the lawns with a push mower (no motor) in the white singlet and shorts. While we played in the sand pit he was pruning /grafting his prized apple trees in the back yard. Our sincere condolences to Chris, Jenny, Stephen, Libby , Damo and their families
With love from Dianne (Jackie) and Shane.
