Fr Kevin Matthews -

I was made a judge in 1976 at the same time the new tribunal came about with Mons Tiggemann in charge. He was always a kind and gentle soul and easy to work with. He often had racing tips for me so I could call into Gawler or Balaklava on the way home. One of them magpie a perfect fourtrella. He will always be remembered as the priest who officiated at more marriages than anyone else in the Archdiocese. Sorry my hip, spine and knee operations prevented me from being at the funeral.
