A celebration of Mark Smith’s life. Friday 2 August at Ballarat.

Many will remember ex Point Cook Flying Club member and avid aviation photographer Mark Smith. For those unaware, sadly Mark was a pedestrian involved in a collision with a vehicle in Ballarat. Sadly he died at the scene on the Glenelg Highway in Smythes Creek.

Many will know of Mark’s contribution to the aviation community as the current editor and photographer at RAAus magazine “Sport Pilot” and recent editor of the AOPA magazine “Australian Pilot”. RIP Mark

Michelle Smith (Mark Smith’s widow) has advised :-

We’d like to invite everyone who was part of  Mark Smith’s life to a celebration of his life on Friday August 2.

The celebration will be held at 11.30am at Ballarat & District Trotting Club, cnr Bell and Sutton streets, Redan (Ballarat).

The service will be followed by refreshments at the venue and swapping of many memories and tall tales of Mark’s many and varied exploits. 

In respect of Mark’s ‘strong dislike’ of ties, men are requested to leave their ties at home.

Michelle Smith

In lieu of flowers, Michelle’s request is a contribution to the Mark Smith GYFTS Scholarship Fund online or by calling RAAus on 02 6280 4700.
