JOHN MENADUE. Vale Graham Freudenberg

A dear friend and colleague, Graham Freudenberg, died this morning at the Redcliffe Hospital.  He was admired and will be mourned by many people who knew him personally and a great number of people who knew him in public recognition of his work.

Throughout his long illness, he remained courageous and concerned for people around him, and particularly for the Labor Party that he loved.  As he physically declined, the strength of his inner life became even more apparent.  He was delighted that, in his last week of life he could see again ‘The Scribe’ on ABC TV.

His close friends and family, and Australians generally, have been privileged to know Graham Freudenberg.
