Vale: John Richardson

It is with a very heavy heart I have to tell you that John (John Richardson), Secretary of the

Bega Valley Shire Residents and Ratepayers Association (BVSRRA), passed away on Thursday night in hospital in Sydney ....

If you were unaware he had been battling for a long time oral cancer which reignited again and again, he was due for further major surgery when he took a turn in the early hours of the morning after having stabilised somewhat on the previous day....the hospital called Anne at her hotel and she went straight there but it was all too late.. John was gone....Anne's sister and brother arrived on Friday to be with Anne .. John is to be cremated in Sydney and then to have a memorial service to be held at John and Anne's home at Wallagoot at a date to be announced.... We have lost a true statesman for truth, fairness and integrity...a man who instilled belief and confidence in others, a caring selfless person ...an intellectual giant, a one in a million man....with a life full of wonderful achievements….. and no longer suffering RIP John Bega Valley Shire Residents and Ratepayers Association
