In loving memory of Roger John Davey
Roger John Davey was born in Parkes but grew up in Orange. Upon finishing high school he went to work for the NSW Justice Department where he undertook his law studies part time. Eventually he was appointed as at Stipendiary Magistrate, a role in which he served the NSW Justice Department for 25 years. He had some interesting cases in his time such as the poisonous chocolate case, the accused sports star and the protests against the Canberra airport flight path.
Outside of work he was an active member of numerous church groups, community bands and choirs and played both tennis and golf. He also enjoyed his garden and particularly liked native plants. He had a very strong sense of social justice and was a very keen follower of current affairs.
He was a very devoted family man and will be sorely missed by his wife and daughters, other family members and his many friends.
Frontotemperal dementia does not discriminate. It can impact the young and old. It could be your family member, your friend, your parents or even your child. A lot more research is required into this cause of dementia which effectively steals away a person’s very identity.
In honor of Roger's life, we invite our friends and family to make a donation to support research at the Frontier Frontotemporal Dementia Research Group, based at the University of Sydney's Brain and Mind Centre.
Frontier is a highly collaborative, interdisciplinary research clinic that investigates frontotemporal dementia (FTD) in collaboration with ForeFront Ageing and Neurodegeneration. FTD is Australia’s second most common degenerative disease that causes dementia in younger adults.
As the first ever research group to concentrate on FTD in Australia, Frontier is dedicated to identifying better ways to diagnose FTD, finding the cause and developing effective treatments for the condition.
We thank you for your generosity.
Helen Davey, Catherine, Jennifer and Alison
