  • Bev Cartwright Posted 14/08/2020 10:17 am

    To Prue and her family. I was so sad to hear Garry had passed away. I can’t imagine how difficult this must be for you all now, please remember that I care about you all. I hope you all feel surrounded by much love.

    I’ll miss Garry. I loved ticking him off. He could be a bit of a naught boy sometimes. What I really loved more, was when he would disappear down stairs and return with a saucer with chocolates on it to share. We’re both addicted to chocolate. He always asked me not to tell Prue. I didn’t. She probably already knew.

    He was good fun, in to everything. He loved his cigars with a drink, his motor bikes and cars. I’ll miss listening to his stories. He was so generous with both time and money for those in need. A good man. One I’ll miss.

    You are all in my thoughts, Bev Cartwright

  • Elizabeth Anderson and Patrick Churchville Posted 14/08/2020 12:14 pm

    When we first met Garry, in 1985, he was wearing jeans and a white shirt with French cuffs and cufflinks while atop top an elephant at Tiger Tops in Nepal. Fast forward nine months later, when we landed at Melbourne airport to stay for a week at the Krauss Haus with people we didn’t know very well but who had nevertheless invited us to be “their Yanks” for our visit to Oz. When Garry apologized about the size of the boot in his Silver Cloud Rolls Royce, Patrick asked him why he hadn’t brought the good car.

    This began of a friendship that has lasted all these years, with crisscross visits in Australia (Prahran, Portsea, Merricks), Bahrain, and Florida.

    Garry always made us feel so very welcome—and he made us laugh. He was a great human being and gentleman who didn’t take himself too seriously. That’s why we love him.

    Love and hugs to all his girls.

    Elizabeth and Patrick

  • Rick Yared Posted 14/08/2020 12:17 pm

    Sue Hunt and I send our deepest condolences to Prue and the girls, and your wider family . Garry was such a great supporter of the old VSO , but it went beyond generous financial support to real engagement with the staff and artists. His personal commitment to the opera society made this group one of the most successful support groups of the Company.
    He will always be remembered.
    RIP Garry.

  • ADAM BURKE Posted 14/08/2020 1:20 pm

    Garry was so generous to me and our family, he was like an uncle, and we will really miss him. We had many memories but I’ll never forget him cooking the food for Toby and Jess’ wedding, sweating like he was running a marathon. Needless to say it was delicious. And for the record, I believe he was a Magpie before he saved Richmond. Condolences and love to Pru, Katie, Tori and Anna.

  • GEOFF THOMAS Posted 14/08/2020 1:53 pm

    I spent 1958 with Garry in the first year of an engineering diploma course at Swinburne. At the same end of that year, rejecting his father’s advice, he took his life in a different direction.
    We crossed paths on occasions as his life moved through business, sport, the arts, and people people people. Many will miss Garry.
    Best wishes to all his family.

  • John Stevenson Posted 14/08/2020 2:15 pm

    My great sympathies to Prue and the Krauss family. He was indeed larger than life with a unique sense of humour and great generosity! I have only fond and happy memories of my time around Garry including at the opera company Board, social events and as my proposer to WBC too! Again, thank you so much for proposing me Garry. Many memories. I will never forget Garry’s turbo charged martini’s or calling in for a coffee and ending up with a huge gourmet spread as brunch. I also once sent a fax to Garry in the days when they were still in vogue and he said to me: “What are you doing? My machine has run out of paper…” and he proceeded to give me a memorable quote from Shakespeare: “Brevity is the font of all wit!” Polonius to his son, i think, or?…and I do keep that in mind and certainly did laugh and love at the time! Vale Garry Krauss, great man and a real friend to us all.

    What a wonderful service for such a truly amazing person, husband, father and friend to so many. So many happy memories and a smile on my face when I remember back on the times I spent with Garry and the family. I was made to feel so welcome and loved by Garry, Pru and the girls in my early years in Melbourne. I was blessed to be included in so many fun times at Grandview Gve, Portsea, the MCG, and sipping scotch with Garry in the den. Love to you all. RIP Garry and God bless you. Bakes

We will miss you. Love to Pru, Katie, Fez and Breath et al.. Us Beamses xxxx

  • John and Fay Forbes Posted 16/08/2020 2:55 pm

    Dear Pru, on behalf of all the Forbes family I send our deepest sympathy for your loss of Garry. He was one of my oldest and dearest friends. I will always have a vision in my head of Garry’s arrival in Grandview Grove on the back of a camel!
    He was an inspiration to many and gave practical assistance wherever possible.
    Our friendship started in 1955 and endures to this day.
    Fay and l will miss his warmth and sprit.of hospitality..
    We will leave a light on for him at the Prairie Park homestead In his honour as the moonlight seems a little duller since he left.
    Love John and Fay Forbes.
