Depression takes AV guy

Sadly we report the death of Daniel Castelli in the early hours of Saturday morning, 18th of October 2014. Daniel was a much-loved member of the InSight Systems team and known to many through the Audio Visual industry.

Daniel was a good man and though he appeared as fun loving guy, we now know that he suffered with depression and had since the age of 14. This was something that he held to himself and chose not to share with anyone, even those closest to him. It stayed with him until the end.

Daniel leaves behind his wife Marcia and two young children.

InSight are considering practical ways to support Marcia through this incredibly difficult situation and have set up a trust account through their accountants to try and offset any financial needs she has. They ask you to consider contributing to this if you felt it an appropriate way to offer your support.

Details are:

Account Name                  Cummings Flavel McCormack Trust Account
BSB                                      033-165
Account Number              14-3158

There will also be a funeral service = details are still being finalised however it will likely be early next week. If you would like to be notified, please email and we will pass on information as we get it.

In addition, the team at InSight Systems will be participating in Movember this year. Their attempt to grow a Mo during November will be in honour of Daniel and a way to increase awareness and understanding of the health risks men face.

If you are facing a tough time, feeling overwhelmed or in a painful situation, please know it is something you don’t have to bear alone. Talk to loved ones around you or seek professional support through someone like Beyond Blue (1300 224 636) or Suicide Line (1300 651 251)
