Requiem Mass for Malouf
REQUIEM Mass for the first Mayor of the City of Coffs Harbour, Bernie Malouf, attracted a large crowd to St Augustine’s Catholic Church yesterday.
Among the mourners were the present Mayor, Cr Keith Rhoades and present and former Coffs Harbour councillors and staff members as well as family, friends, church members, business associates and representatives of many organisations helped by the late Mr Malouf.
Margo Caba recalled the days when Bernie Malouf and other members of the Malouf, Caba, Simmons and Mackay families had all been in different business ventures in the Coffs Harbour city centre and had all been ‘wonderful friends’ as well as friendly rivals for business.
Following the church service, mourners were invited to the Hogbin Drive Crematorium Chapel for committal prayers and the eulogy, followed by refreshments.
