Vale Neil Weekes AM MC (Retd)

As many of you will now be aware, Brigadier Neil Weekes AM MC (Retd) tragically passed away on 6 March 2017. Neil was widely known and respected, both within the University and in the wider Townsville community. He joined JCU in 1993 as the Executive Officer to the Vice Chancellor, a role he held for some 10 years.

Neil’s first wife predeceased him, but he is survived by his second wife Jo, and two sons and a daughter from his first marriage. Our thoughts are with them at this sad time.

Funeral arrangements are not yet known, although it is expected that Neil will be buried in Brisbane.  Details, when finalised, will be available here
