Paul Hester Memorial Service

 article about Paul Hester Memorial Service

Yesterday family and friends paid their last respects to Paul Hester, at a memorial service held at the estate Elsternwick in Melbourne, Australia.

Hester's former Crowded House bandmates Tim and Neil Finn were among many musicians attending that had known him, along with other music industry people.   An emotional speech was made by Neil Finn, who referred to Paul as 'Hessie'.

Hester has been known to have depression problems for a number of years, although according to friends he was in good spirits recently.  He has been separated from his partner Mardi Sommerfeld for four years and is survived by his daughers, Olive, 8 and  Sunday, 10.
