  1. What can you say that hasn’t been said about Gypsy. For me a great mentor and friend to both Jenny and I. A man who strived for professionalism and always had time for anyone. A true gentleman in every sense of the word. Gyps you touched so many lives you would be amazed . A greater swan, (EDFC) we have never seen. You will be sorely missed old mate… enjoy that 6 ounce. Love JD & Jen x

  2. I loved spending time with Gypsy, he was so naturally comfortable talking to anyone about anything, but when the subject got onto football and his beloved Saints and Swans, his eyes sparkled with a passion that only true believers have.

    I had a personal nickname for Gyps, “ Mr Memorabilia “… he could get anything, and I have items he got me that I will treasure forever.

    The Stkilda motto “ Fortius Quo Fidelius “
    Strength through loyalty….. personified Gypsys life.

  6. I have followed the Launceston Football Club since 1951. and in that time so many champions, but my favorite was “GYPSY” .I am extremely fortunate to have Graeme’s East Devonport portrait and history of his time with his beloved Swans, so every day of my remaining days I will see this great champion. Rest my dear friend till we meet again
