In Memoriam

IBM Quarter Century Club of Victoria > In Memoriam

Over the course of 25 years or more working for IBM, our Quarter Century Club members have formed strong friendships with colleagues across many locations in Australia and overseas.  While many have lost contact since retiring or parting from IBM, the memories of friendships and shared experiences remain.

We wish to pay respect to deceased members of the QCC when informed of their passing and share such information with other QCC members in Victoria and other states and territories.

If you are aware of the recent passing of any IBMer please contact with details and any information you may have of the deceased’s time with IBM, roles, key contributions or anecdotes you may wish to share. 

You may also Submit an In Memoriam item for publication on this site to provide updates or your own tribute to a deceased member.  The IBM A/NZ Famous in the 70s and 80s Facebook page may also be used to post Vale notices or tributes.
