Alfred Date – A decent human being

Alfred Date was the oldest man in Australia until he passed away at the age of 110 on the 2nd of May, 2016. As a young boy, he discovered a love for knitting, a hobby he learned from his sister. During Alfred’s later years on life, he began to knit sweaters for the penguins living in Philip Island. The sweaters were to protect the penguins from oil spills.
