In May, NARPACA was saddened by the passing of John Du Feu. John was a past NARPACA President and venue manager in Townsville, a talented actor, director and musician. John's passion and energy for theatre was remarkable, his achievements were many and his creativity was unstoppable.

One of John's friends on Facebook sums up the impact of this loss: "We will miss you John. And will miss the chance to see you again. You were a giant among us, and your memory will reverberate with us for many years to come."

Our sincere condolences to Daphne, his daughter Marijke and John's extended family and friends.
