Neville Thiele, a former Vice President International of the AES, has died in Sydney, Australia, at the age of 91.
A Queenslander by birth, Neville was a friend to all who knew him, within the AES and outside, a great scholar, a fine engineer, a bushwalker and a man of peace.
“Born within the smell of the Castlemaine Four-X Brewery” as Neville cheerfully told everyone, he spent his childhood in the city of Brisbane, and its suburbs. His father, a qualified pharmacist, taught Neville and his brother Leonard core elements of confidence through his own passion for singing and poetry recital.
