Gary's widow Theresa, daughter Michelle and son Matthew, would like to advise that a memorial service for Gary will be held in Rushcutters Bay Park on Tuesday 30 August 2011, commencing at 11:30am.

The service is open to anyone who would like to attend.

A reel of Ticehurst's feature film work is being compiled by Matt Graham from the ABC and will be screened at the memorial service. He is trying to locate images (still or moving) of Gary and his work.

Pilot Gary Ticehurst covered some 29 Sydney to Hobart races and played a prominent role in the film and television industries for decades before last week’s tragic helicopter crash took his life alongside ABC journalist Paul Lockyer and camerman John Bean.

With the cooperation of Woollahra Municpal Council, the northern section of Rushcutters Bay Park will be open for car parking on a first come, first served basis for guests attending the memorial service from 0830 hours. Cars will need to be removed by 1800 hours.
