He participated in countless cultural events within the Slovenian Community, including all 16 bi-annual Slovenian Festivals under the auspices of the CSOV.His funeral, attended by hundreds of mourners was held at the Saints Cyril and Methodius Slovenian Church in Kew on Tuesday, August 14th 2018. A wake was held in the church hall after his requiem Mass.SBS Slovenian pays tribute to this remarkable man, who did so much good within the Slovenian Community in Victoria for over 60 years, since arriving in Australia from Slovenia with his two sisters. Mrs Draga Gelt OAM, Mr Peter Mandelj OAM JP, Mrs Frances Urbas Johnson and Mr Milan Kokol share their fondest memories of a true gentleman, who had Slovenia and the Slovenian Community in his heart!
