Educator expires

Monday 4th Sept. 2006, Colin Thiele died in hospital after a short stay due to breathing difficulties (and a failing heart). He was 85 years old.


One of Nature's gentlemen. A quiet, but passionate Educator and writer. His card in this great library of life has expired, but his contribution to that Library will long be remembered. Rest in Peace, Colin.

I haven't read many of his books, being a sci-fi fan but I thought the film of "Storm Boy" was wonderful. That goes on my list of 'every time I see it I cry' films.

OK, try "Fire in the stone".

RIP Colin Thiele.
85 is a good age, so we are not shocked; he left a literary legacy, so we cannot be saddened.
I hope his soul lives over The Coorong.

Brownie, his soul will forever drift as highlights across the Australian landscape .. like "sun on the stubble".
