His passing on Tuesday, 2 September 2014 was sudden, as he had been discharged from hospital to recuperate at home.

Paying tribute to this romantic husband, wonderful father of three (two sons and a daughter ) a consummate diplomat and generally just a great bloke, family, friends and colleagues remembered him for his sporting prowess as an Aussie Rules Football (AFL) player, his love for all things French, dancing and singing.

He served his country dutifully and his ability and experience was acknowledged by those who interacted with him professionally and personally. He actively supported the formation and development of the Australian Business Chamber of Commerce Southern Africa (ABCSA) and is credited for strengthening relations between Australia and the Southern African region.

The Graeme Wilson Award will be established by the Australian Awards scholarship programme, a fitting honour for someone who began his career as a teacher.

The recitation of prayers, poems and hymns profoundly reflected the cherished memories of the life of Graeme Wilson.

Diplomatically Speaking - H E Graeme Wilson
