In memory of Glenn McLaughlin

On Saturday 25th July my brother in law Glenn McLaughlin suddenly and unexpectedly passed away.

Glenn was doing what he loved- playing golf with his closest mates when he collapsed. His friends performed CPR until Ambulance Victoria arrived but the paramedics were sadly unable to revive him.

Glenn's wife Mel and their seven year old twins, Lola and Taj, are now devastated by the tragic loss of their loving husband and father.

We also lost our grandfather, Eric Conn, on the 29th May and my sister Mel has been a rock for our family during this time.

Due to COVID-19 and employment changes Mel returned to study in March with the goal of becoming a disability support woker to help those in need.

As Glenn was the sole income provider for the McLaughlins I am reaching out for help to support Mel and her young family during their darkest hour.

In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations are made to Mel and the kids.

All funds will help with funeral costs, the every day living for this beautiful family from bills, food, education for the kids and the mortgage.

Mel will be the sole benificiary of these donations and I will arrange for the funds to be released directly to her through Go Fund Me. 

Glenn would have been grateful to know his family were being taken care of.

Thank you for your kindness,

Mel's sister.
