Grima Emanuel 1943-2024 – Another loss to the Maltese community

It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of Emanuel Grima on the 3rd of January 2024 who would have been aged 81 years in August of this year, in Malta.

Emanuel was the first graphic designer of The Voice of the Maltese (Leħen il-Malti) in 2013 and was active in the Maltese community in NSW during the period 1963-2017.

Emanuel Grima was born in Għajnsielem, Gozo in August 1943. Since early childhood, graphic arts have held a fascination for him. Carpentry and cabinet making was what he gravitated to at St Joseph in Santa Venera.

He migrated to Australia in 1963 and although he excelled in his trade his fascination with graphic arts took hold. In 1991 he took a TAFE course in desktop publishing and started editing and publishing with success the festa annual booklet of Our Lady of Victory in Horsley Park and also San Nikola of Plumpton.

He lent a hand with the publication by the Maltese Welfare Inc. of the Maltese Community Directory on their 30th anniversary. He co-ordinated the graphic presentation of the book Telqu Għal Għonq it-Triq, Edition Two, written by Lawrence Dimech in July 2016.

He served on the early committees of the Melita Eagles FC, Maltese Welfare and Maltese Past Pupils of Don Bosco.

Emanuel was married to Doris and both returned to live in Żurrieq Malta in 2018.

May he rest in peace.
