Loadedog has a obituary for Ali Parraga, best known to the denizens of Civic as “Silver Man”.
“Today we bear the sad news that Ali Parraga, pictured above dancing to Cicilia Kemezysâ€™ flute, passed away yesterday morning. Many will recall Ali as the â€˜Silver Manâ€™ who busked in Civic for many a year. Attendees at Januaryâ€™s Backyard Backanalia will recall his performance with greater poignancy Iâ€™m sure, knowing, as we now do, that it was his last.
For those wishing to pay their respects; the memorial service is tomorrow, 27 February, 10am, at Tobin Brothers Funerals, 75 Canberra Ave Kingston.
