Sad News Regarding Member - Brabham

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

I received a letter today informing me that Alex known by username @Brabham passed away last December, the letter was from his mother asking for advice on selling his Datsun related items.

Alex was doing a tafe course in panel beating as was I and we met in person quite a few times. He was a lovely guy and I'm very saddened to learn of his passing.

I'm sure others were wondering where he had gone as he hadn't posted in quite a while here.

I know he was well liked by quite a few of us. So I'm sorry to bring this sad news to you.

Very, very saddened to hear this news.

I was a Eastern Creek in 2013 when Alex had the first drive of his newly acquired Historic Formula Vee.

We shared stories of our travels to Pebble Beach and Laguna Seca.

Unfortunately we had lost contact in recent years.

He was well qualified and worked as an Economist and had a great interest in historic racing.

My sincerest condolences to his wife Rachel and family. RIP 'Sir Jack'.

Very sad news, I met Alex through Z's as he was restoring his 2+2 and used to bump into him at Historic meetings when he was driving his Formula Vee. I last saw him at Phillip Island in 2018 and he was quite chuffed as he had met up with the chap who originally raced his car.

A very nice young man, condolences to his family.

Damn... I wondered why he had not posted in a while...
I met Alex numerous times at PI Classic and he even bought parts off me. 

Condolences to his family :(

Mate i never met them hey maybe once or twice when at school for events where folks turned up school life was school life and home was home and as a kid i wasnt allowed out much 

I went to try and reconnect given our 20 yr reunion was inthe now replanning works and i found this 

Id last seen him a while back but thay was before i had facebook or social media  ect 

i know it may seem odd that im writing here butits nice seeing some of the things he spoke of in school came to fruition 

You mentioned panel beating course ? A night class or tafe class?

Cheers mate and thanks for the reply

Cheers and all the best ...
