Family, friends and the printing industry were saddened to hear about the recent passing of great industry legend Rod Spencer.
He left the world peacefully surrounded by family and friends, aged 80 years. A man who made a huge impression on all those who he met and truly dedicated his life not only to his beloved family, but also the printing industry and Heidelberg Australia and New Zealand.
Rod retired in 2001 after over 44 years of commitment to Heidelberg. He played an instrumental role in helping to shape the industry and countless companies who dealt with him over the years. He will be remembered fondly by many friends and colleagues, not only locally but all over the world.
He was well respected and the news of his passing was felt all the way back to the German Headquarters of Heidelberg where those who knew him spoke fondly of him and sent their condolences immediately.
Savas Mystakidis, managing director Heidelberg Australia and New Zealand, says, “I had the great pleasure to start my career at Heidelberg under the guiding eye of the great Rod Spencer. His knowledge, generosity, wisdom and charisma were inspiring as he helped all those around him like a father figure. He will be sadly missed and our thoughts and prayers go to his wife Patricia, family and friends.”
