Not sure what to say?

Was just thinking of Mike Devoy and remembering what an amazing teacher he was, he taught me at FIS in 1981. I'm so surprised and saddened to know he's no longer with us. Best wishes to his family.

My condolences go out to the Devoy family. Mike was an incredible teacher and greatly respected by all those that had the pleasure to meet him.
RIP MIKE

We have lots of great memories of a man who taught many many students over the years. My husband's brother being one of those. A community man through and through. Mr Fairfield Intermediate, R.I.P.

Rest in peace Mike, You were a true character and a huge part of my years at intermediate and in my adult years at the Easty always took the time to have a chat about sport and how my family were doing. Deepest sympathies to your family.

Condolences to the Devoy family. I happened upon this news by chance and was saddened to hear of his passing. I was a student at Fairfield Intermediate School 12-13 years ago and though he was never a teacher of mine, I still remember what a great teacher he was. Fun and inspiring. Rest easy, Mr Devoy.

I had the pleasure of working with Mike for 16 years and he also taught our daughter for her 2 years at FIS. You truly were a wordsmith, with many yarns to tell, songs to sing, general knowledge to share. Who will do the Melbourne Cup sweepstake this year??? Still can't believe I am signing your book. My sincerest condolences to Karen and the family. RIP Mike.

Mike was a greatly loved and respected teacher of mine as well as recently a loved and respected work colleague. My condolences and sympathies to the family x x

OMG NO!
I use to work with this great man, he taught me how to be a better teacher and person. The world lost a great person..... I'll pour out a drink for him tonight.

My deepest condolences to Karen and the family for the passing of a great guy. Serving him at the easty was always a pleasure. I always enjoyed his insights on the mooloo's. He was Mr Fairfield Intermediate School and Easty Quizmaster.
