In the past three months two former members of The Clippers and The Sunshine Region have passed away.
Dennis Palmer joined The Clippers in 2017 as a Tenor and, before the advance of cancer, held many positions in the chorus, including acting as Musical Director and then continuing in the music team by managing the music portfolio until his retirement. He continued to sing with retired Clippers until shortly before his death. Dennis had a wonderful sense of humour and throughout his life contributed to the youth movement within the Uniting Church of Australia.
Myron Loving sang Bass with The Clippers for many years. Myron poured a huge effort into his love of Barbershop singing with quartets and choruses in the Sunshine Region. Myron was an accomplished musician and used his musical skills in transposing songs, particularly for quartet singing. He was an accomplished artist and performer always full of fun.
Both men will be sorely missed by the Australian Barbershoppers with whom they were associated.
