My father Karl Heinz Rudolf Homberger has moved on to the next world. He lived in two worlds here, Germany and Australia. His own father Richard died a soldier in France, his mother Sofie died in 1991, his sister Ushi in 2006, and his brother Richard the same day. Now they are together again. While working in Germany during his youth he waited on an Australian embassy official who told him he could go there for free on a ship. First they took him to outback Western Australia where he worked at a mine. Eventually he ended up in Melbourne where he met a beautiful German woman working at the Windsor hotel. He married her, Gertrud, and in 1957 they had their first child, Suzanne. Children would become a feature of his life having 5 of his own, 13 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. He was a good man, death is inevitable. The average man in Australia lives to 82, he made 85. Let’s celebrate his life rather than mourn his death. We can be sad for not being able to see him again. He loved a good celebration. To name a few restaurants where he worked; “The Abbey of Diamond Creek”, “The Hofbrauhaus”, “Hunters Lodge”, “Capers”. My enduring memory of Heinz is his sincerity and honesty.
