It's a sad day when you hear of the passing of a work colleague and no more so than good friend Wayne Smith from Chapple Magnetics in Melbourne
I was contacted by Simon Murphy from FujiFilm this morning who passed on the sad news.
I only spoke with Wayne a few weeks ago and he was his normal vibrant self, no hint of a problem and we discussed catching up at this year's Entech as our paths don't cross as often as they used to with the massive changes in our Industry.
Although we were to some degree competitors in business our friendship surpassed that and I'm sad to hear that he passed away on Friday (cause yet to be determined). 63 is way too young.
I raise a glass to you Wayne,
and condolences to your family
RIP my friend
