Kim-Santow-Blue.jpg

Long time no speak. It is saddening that it takes Kim Santos’ passing to promote me to write. I trust that all is well with you and the family. I may make it to Sydney this coming Christmas and will contact if I do. Eric passed on the sad news about Kim Santow passing. This was particularly saddening for me, as Kim officiated at the presentation of degrees in Hong Kong last year when I was conferred with my Masters degree in Project Management (after all these years). It was like an old boys reunion as the attached photograph shows.

Kim had a prodigious memory and was particularly complimentary of Eric and my success in the 1972 IV pairs describing us the most accomplished pair oar that the University had produced to the other academics in the party. Although this was obviously overly generous, it nevertheless evidenced his kind heart.
