Fergus and I went to school together. We knew each other since we were 9 or 10. Though I've been living on the other side of the world now for 30 years, we always caught up when I came back home to Sydney. He was sensitive, humourous, inquisitive, articulate, intelligent, was exuberant, an enthusiast and had his own special flair. I immensely enjoyed hearing him speak about his experiences in Japan, in showbiz, in Queensland, Buddhism, portals and his quests, as well as many other topics such as his music and forthcoming album. Fergus is my friend and I miss him.
Fergus, how very sad to find you here! I first met you, your brother and sister at my father’s cattle property in western Queensland when you were 12 years old. All three of you made holidays special for us and we have some very happy memories. Fergus you especially brightened up a terribly sad time in my life. We were just kids back then but we kept in touch through the years. Every time we saw each other, we would ask ourselves “where will we be in three years’ time”? You touched so many with your gentle spirit, your kindness and genuine care for others. You made me laugh like no one else did! I pray you found the peace you were looking for, the 'peace that passes all understanding'. Rest easy my friend. Until we meet again. (Thank you ‘anonymous’ for posting the photo) Leisa Murray
Always in my thoughts
I can't believe I did not get the opportunity to say goodbye. How precious friendship is, how much we take it for granted, how we think they will always be there. I search for you and find these pages. I knew you before all the others, I was there when you came out ... you were there for me when things were difficult beyond measure and I never told you how much I appreciated your generosity and positiveness. I'll see you up there in the near future, save a table for me ... big hugz. Pauline
I met Fergus in 1989 and lived with him, along with many others - mostly foreigners - in an old house near Minami-Asagaya station in Tokyo. Fergus was very kind and generous. He helped me secure work during my stay in Japan, even lending me clothes to wear at job interviews. Most importantly, he introduced me to Buddhist meditation. This was an invaluable gift for which I am forever grateful. Thank you Fergus, I will never forget you. Love, peace, and metta, Julian
Fergus, You will always be remembered by me and I will always be so very grateful for you spiritual assistance. Be well in spirit...from your Hollywood friend.
Fergus was always a delightful friend, kind understanding warm and helpful, i knew him in Tokyo and would often see him at his home or we would go to a bar and even sometimes the synagogue as well as his operatic and tv activities he practised Buddhism and never failed to encourage and support not only myself but many others over difficult situations. A Devastating Loss to life. Avshalom
A real free spirit. Enjoy the rest of the journey.
