Vale – Richard Hill

Richard Hill was a true gentleman, an authentic and humble leader and a loved and respected friend. He had a long history of supporting community efforts to include people with disability and has generously shared his time in various roles – chairperson, guest speaker, councillor, mentor. He was excited about the possibilities of Diverse Leadership Inc and agreed to take on the role of inaugural chairperson. Sadly he won’t be around to continue with his many commitments and he will be sorely missed by his family, friends and colleagues. Our deepest sympathy to his wife Heather, his family and carers. Richard will not be forgotten.
