Vale Bob Rossi
As many of you know, sad news came at the beginning of the month, as we learned that sugar industry identity, fisherman and Fellow of Course 3 of the Australian Rural Leadership Program, Bob Rossi has passed away.
As his family, industry and many colleagues and peers grieve for Bob, we are also remebering his father, Robert Rossi OAM, who passed away just weeks earlier.
We have included this link to a story featured on ABC Rural which pays tribute to Bob Rossi junior's many achievements in the sugar industry.
Bob died while up in Darwin with his wife, Pam, visiting his daughter, son in law and grandchildren. He was enjoying some of his chief loves - family, fishing, and dancing.
The Foundation extends its sincere condolences to Bob's family and loved ones, and extends the well-wishes of our entire Network at this sad time.
This rural leader will indeed be missed.
Bob sent the Foundation this wonderful picture just a few days before he passed away; what a wonderful haul of mud crabs.
