Vale Group Captain Rob Shortridge

I am sad to advise you that DFWAQ Executive Vice-President, and former President, Rob Shortridge passed away on 15 February.

Since being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year, Rob fought valiantly and in true form held out well past the average time for the stage of this disease. He continued to show interest in and contribute to the work of DFWA throughout and into this year.

His funeral service will be held on Tuesday 8th March at 2:00 pm at Archerfield Jet Base, Hangar 5 Qantas Avenue, Archerfield Airport, followed by a flypast and short reception.

A Poppy Service conducted by DFWA will form part of the commemoration of Rob’s life. Veterans are requested to wear medals.

The funeral will be live streamed. To receive a link to the stream via email, please register on the Swan Borough Funerals memorial page.

No flowers by request.

The venue advises that current Qld COVID restrictions apply and admission will require proof of vaccination (Green Tick in the Check In Qld mobile phone application.)

Condolences and short remembrances forwarded to will be passed to Rob’s family.

John Lowis

President, DFWAQ
