Gordon Chapman Obituary, Death – I was shocked to learn about the demise of one of the most respected members of our community, Gordon Chapman. After travelling throughout the United States on a study trip for agriculture in the early 1970s, Gordon, a successful cherry and berry farmer, brought the U-Pick model back to Australia. Everyone who came into contact with Gordon was unable to avoid his contagious personality and raucous laughter. He was a friend and a guide to many people, including myself, and he was really enthusiastic about the Yarra Valley.
Over the course of several decades, Gordon was an extremely dedicated volunteer for a large number of local community organisations. These organisations included the Wandin Silvan Field Days, Mont De Lancey Historic Homestead (a board on which Gordon and I both served), and the Liberal Party. Gordon will be greatly missed because he was selfless, a diligent worker, and always set an example of excellence for those around him, particularly younger people.
Sincere condolences go out to his family, particularly his children Mark, Steve, Darren, and Susan, as well as their respective families. He will be reunited with Linda, the woman he has loved more than anything in the world.
Expressions of sympathy, Sincere condolences go out to his children Mark, Steve, Darren, and Susan, as well as their respective families. A man who is known to be exceedingly just, generous, and knowledgeable. Chappie, may you finally get some rest. ‘Poppy’ One of the greatest is Chapman! RIP poppy! I will always remember the conferences that we attended together, as well as the advise that you provided. Please say hello to your father in the sky for me.
