Pat* & Roger Riordan
* Died 14.12.2010
My name is Roger Riordan. I was born in Melbourne, and during the war I lived at Mt Dandenong. I graduated from Melbourne University in Electrical Engineering in 1954, & have always been interested in botany and photography. I first met a computer at CSIRO in 1967 & have been hooked ever since.
I married Shirley-Anne (Sally) Yeo in 1961, and we had three children, now scattered around the globe. Sally died of a heart attack in 1999. In 2000 I married long-time family friend Pat Herman. Pat died of cancer in December 2010.
I wrote the first version of the Vet Anti-Viral software in 1989, and when we sold it in 1999 we used part of the proceeds to set up the Cybec Foundation.
