The OBA was greatly saddened to learn of the passing of the wonderful John Meehan, aged 91.

One of the many hardworking fathers behind the scenes who were just so instrumental in supporting the College as it grew during the 1970’s and 80’s.

John was forever envied for his vision in purchasing the family home at 26 Grevillea Road in 1967 leaving a walk of only 18 paces across to the Flats on a Saturday morning to watch all those sons and grandsons represent our great College.

The entire Ashgrove Community sends our condolences to the beautiful Joyce, John’s wife of 68 years and to sons Bryan (1972), David (1977), Kevin (1979) and Stephen (1983) and daughters Frankie and Louise;  and to our fellow OBs and grandsons Patrick, Darcy and Jack Meehan and Garth, Matthew, Duncan and Eric Fallon and to their extended families.

May our Mother Mary and St Marcellin Champagnat welcome John home.
