In a family video, late hairdresser Mick Mavromatis tells how he met his then wife-to-be Angela.
This is one of the poignant moments in the life of Mr Mavromatis who was posthumously awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia in the Queen’s Birthday Honours on Monday.
The video was shot by Mr Mavromatis’ son Kim, a professional film-maker based in Port Pirie.
Sitting on a couch while surrounded by family members, Mr Mavromatis reveals that he met Angela in an arranged introduction.
He pays tribute to his “beautiful” wife.
Mr Mavromatis also talks about his early life in Egypt and Greece.
Kim offered The Recorder the opportunity to publish his video online and the newspaper is indebted to him for sharing the “love”.
