Fred and Marilyn with young Richard and Karyn arrived amongst us in Arawa in 1976. Little Nicole came to them while they lived there, in Section 19. For some 6 years, Fred worked in the Technical Services design office in Panguna.
Those of you who frequented the Kieta Sailing Club will well remember Fred. He and the family were there on many enjoyable weekends.
On their departure from Bougainville the Simons moved to Comalco, Weipa where they completed another 6 years prior to settling in Brisbane in 1988.
