Vale Glenn ‘Gaf’ Burnell

Posted on Monday, May 28th, 2012

It is with a heavy heart we have to report the passing yesterday of Glenn ‘Gaf’ Burnell. Gaf suffered a heart attack on Saturday night while enjoying the Melbourne Gang Show 60th anniversary dinner. He passed away in hospital yesterday morning with parents and friends at his side.

He was a great believer in our industry and loved performance. He was a stickler for quality and had an eye for detail. He held Scouting and it’s values in high regard.

While Gaf could have his grumpy days, I don’t think this outweighed the generosity he showed in teaching those around him. If you knew him he really was the big friendly giant. There are many here at ResX and throughout our industry, who have learnt from him and are richer for it.

You always knew when he was around and it leaves a big gap. Gaf will be missed greatly.
