OBITUARY:
Vale Charles Coffey (1906-2007)


by Mark Posa

News Weekly, March 3, 2007
Charles Coffey died on January 20, 2007. He was 101 years of age.

Charles was one of the first people I met when I arrived in Adelaide.

He was most important as he printed all the material, including how-to-vote cards, for the Democratic Labor Party. I spent a great deal of time at his printing works in Stirling in the Adelaide Hills.

Over the years I came to know Charles and his wife Nellie very well. They often entertained me to lunch and afternoon tea.

He had a love of the Mondragon system of worker self-managed co-operative enterprises in northern Spain and raised the subject with me whenever we met. He also raised it at DLP conferences. What a pity it did not become part of our policy.

I maintained my connection with him throughout the years. When he turned 99, the transport authority extended his driver's licence for 10 years.

Charles was admired greatly by all who knew him. He will badly missed.
