Passing of James Goldrick

The Australian Naval Institute sadly notifies that James Goldrick passed away this morning (17 March 2023) at 0020 at the Clare Holland Hospice in Canberra from leukemia. His wife Ruth was comforted by the peace he has now found. James will be cremated privately next week and then there will be a Memorial Service on 5 April 2023 at Christopher’s Cathedral in Canberra probably at the end of the month followed by a wake.

No flowers by Admiral Goldrick’s request. Donations in lieu to ‘ The Smith Family’ . Rig for serving Navy members will be S2.

James was a most remarkable person and shipmate and ANI members will be greatly saddened by this news. The Royal Australian Navy will release a Vale signal to the Navy probably later today. The Australian Naval Institute obituary of its former President and Life Member is here.
