Glenn Wheatley bid farewell to private family service
Music legend Glenn Wheatley said goodbye with a private service held for his immediate family on Monday. There are currently no plans for an industry shipment at this stage, but it may happen in the future.
In a statement, the Wheatley family said:
The Wheatley family are extremely grateful for the overwhelming expressions of love, respect, admiration and support that have come from all walks of Australian life following Glenn’s passing last Tuesday.
A private family service was held yesterday in Melbourne. The family is aware of the call for an opportunity for the wider community of friends, musicians and business colleagues to honor and celebrate Glenn’s life.
Although not yet ready to make any plans, Gaynor expressed a desire for such an event to follow Wheatley’s long tradition of presenting music for the benefit of the community.
Frontline workers in the medical community’s battle against Covid, especially intensive care nurses, are front and center in her mind.
Glenn Wheatley died of complications from Covid-19 on February 1, 2022. He was the bassist for 60s rock band Masters Apprentices before becoming a manager and launching Little River Band into the world.
