At Cook shops today I came upon a bunch of flowers, and a sad note informing customers that Damian Caesar has passed on suddenly.
For those of you who didn’t know him, Damian was a quite profoundly disabled chap, who used to sell lollies and other items outside Cook shops, to raise funds for the ACT “Boccia” team, (a sport for the wheelchair bound.)
Despite his disabilities, Damian was always happy and chatty, and regulars users of Cook shops, would always stop and pass the time of day with him when he was outside.
I will miss his cheery; “Alright matey!?” when I go down there. He was a decent chap, and the world has lost a colourful character.
