Alf Goldburg (OAM)

Alfred (Alf) Leslie Goldburg (OAM) –  Well known and endearing Dandenong North resident, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Thursday 10th of March 2022 at the spritely age of 95.

In his later years, Alf devoted his efforts to the Dandenong Historical Society, Springvale Benevolent Society and the Noble Park RSL.
Certainly, he was well known for his tireless work with both the State and Federal sections of the Labor Party.

Alf was active in promoting the StarNews and (former) Journal Newspapers wherever he could.  He was known as the retired local Paper Boy, aged over 70.

His colourful charisma will surely be missed.
