  14. My condolences to the Leamon family. As one of those that worked closely with Keith I just wanted to pass on what a wonderful mentor, manager, leader, thinker and kind person that your husband, father and grandfather was to work with. There are not many parts of Agriculture in the Robinvale and Sunraysia region that don’t owe something to the work of the wonderful man that came from “The Paris end of Red Cliffs”.

    Keith’s contribution to agriculture and leadership in extension was integral to the changes which resulted in the success of the table grape industry.
    One of the quiet achievers, terrific to work with, highly respected by work mates. A great career and friend. Sorely missed. Greg Buchanan

  21. My memories of Mildura will always contain the Leamon houseboat (and the speedboat) which were Mr Leamon’s pride and joy. After the long trip up from Melbourne (often in Tammie’s Daihatsu Charade), we were itching to get out on the water and putt up and down the river with a steady supply of Mildura’s best fruit and other produce.

    Mr Leamon would give us our instructions and then dock us for the night and take the speedboat back to Redcliffs and return the next day for the next installment of donut/board/ski hilarities. He was VERY patient with us!

    In later years and in spite of living overseas, we still managed trips up to Mildura. I remember well that the last time I saw Mr Leamon was at the local farmers market – he was quieter but still him.

    My love to Tammie and all the Leamon/Hahn family.
