Biography contributed by Warren Melling

Patrick Vickers was adopted by Frank and Annie Vickers when he was 8 years old and came to live in Mooloolaba. Patrick became a part of our extended family through my Grandparents, Ernest and Patience Skipper. As I cannot find any living relatives, it is
my pleasure to remember Pat on this day, as a friend and as a person of courage, bravery and kindness. Rest in Peace Pat. You remain in my heart forever. Lest We Forget
