Sad news comes from Dunedin, New Zealand.
Fellow 1970s Volunteer Syd McAra has passed away after a long illness. He is survived by two sisters who live there in New Zealand.
Syd was in contact with old friends up until his final months, and will surely be remembered and missed. An online tribute web page is available at: http://tributes.co.nz//ViewMyTribute.aspx?id=8347#
