OBITUARY: GAVIN GREENOAK
It is with a heavy heart that we share the sad news that our friend and past President Gavin Greenoak of the Australian Society of Cosmetic Chemists (ASCC) passed away on Wedneday 21 June. He was a man of integrity and dedication. Gavin was a businessman and scientist but also a poet and my friend. I will treasure his writings and my memories of him forever. He will be missed.
Love and prayers to his family and friends.
MESSAGE FROM THE ASCC
Gavin was an inspirational, highly active member of the ASCC, having served on Council as President and a number of ASCC committees in varying positions. Gavin was President of the IFSCC in 2010, an achievement that only enhanced his already incredible resume. One of Gavin’s more recent successful contributions to the ASCC was to guide the Society to secure the hosting rights for the ASCS conference in 2015. Gavin’s dedication to the ASCC and the industry as a whole saw him loved and respected by everyone. He was described by many as a man generous with his time, a great mentor and an outstanding leader whilst at the same time having a great and unique sense of humour.
On behalf of the ASCC I’d like to extend our condolences to Gavin’s family and friends. As per Gavin’s wishes, there was a Private Home Burial at the family’s Nimbin property on Saturday 1 July. With the permission of Gavin’s family and with Gavin’s love for words, we welcome our members to share their words, memories, stories or offer their condolences.
Please email these to Kate at firstname.lastname@example.org these will be collated and shared with Gavin’s family.
