Archdiocesan priest Fr Ron Flack, who was a heart transplant recipient about 20 years ago, has died in Clare Holland House, Canberra.

The funeral Mass for Fr Flack, with Bishop Pat Power presiding, was celebrated at St Christopher’s Cathedral.
Fr Flack, who struggled with ill health for a number of years, is survived by his older sister Mary; siblings Joan, Colin, Bernie and Paul predeceased him. Mary is the mother of Fr Frey. He is also survived by his former housekeeper and best friend Frances Smyth.
