Michael (Mick) Bernard Nailon (SPC 1954, PY1957)

February 22, 2022

Michael Nailon’s skills were highlighted in the cadet report, published in the 1954 College Annual.

We were notified of the passing of Old Collegian Michael (Mick) Bernard Nailon (SPC 1954, PY1957) who sadly passed away on January 3, 2022. Mick was a boarder from Ararat, where his father was a police superintendent. Mick only attended SPC for one year in 1954, where he completed his sub-intermediate studies. He was a member of the cadets and by all accounts, Mick must have been a good shot, as reported in the cadet report of the 1954 College Annual.

After leaving SPC, we understand Mick continued to live in western Victoria, at Hamilton and later Wickliffe.

He was the devoted husband of Margaret (dec) as well as a father, stepfather, father-in-law and grandfather and “great pop to many”. Mick’s funeral was held at Moyston on January 11, 2022.
