Al, son of Ernest here giving one final blog update regarding my father.
He has passed away peacefully in his (medically-induced) sleep as-of 2022/07/16 03:30 AEST.
I along with his brother Gary will soon be dealing with processing dad's will, pre-paid funeral, and various accounts in his name so I will be able to keep paying for the power and rates as we had the house and land put in both my name and his.
I am keeping his stories (and those he was managing for others) online and available, whilst I work out what to do with the partial and nearly-finished stories he was working on prior to this week.
Thank you all for the well-wishes and support in regards to this situation.
