I want to welcome everybody here today to help celebrate the life and work of Steve Quinn. I want to pass on my personal thanks to Steve’s wife and best mate Barbara and to his children, Jane, Tony and Fiona for letting me share time with Steve not only when he was working but also during his retirement. When Steve asked me to stand here and conduct this ceremony he gave me two clear directions: 1. Don’t be late – as we know Steve was never late to any meeting or function, and 2. No tears or unhappiness.
