Very sadly at about 2.50pm on Friday 26 February 2016, emergency services responded to reports of a motorcycle crash on the Hume Highway, about 20km north of Holbrook.
The 65-year-old male rider was ex-Dara boy from the Class of 1968 Kevin Abbey. He was thrown from the bike sustaining serious injuries and was airlifted to Canberra Hospital, however he died on route.
Kevin held a special place within the Daramalan family because out of roughly 18,000 ex-students who have passed through the school, Kevin was student Number 1, enrolling in 1962. His brother Peter was student number 2.
This is very sad news and I would ask you keep Kevin’s family in your prayers.
