Additionally, it is my further sad duty to reflect upon the passing of Thomas Frank WOTTON who was the very dear and much loved father of our own Branch member Kay Ann DAWSON and her sisters, Wendy and Robyn and loving husband of Connie.

Tom, who in February of this year celebrated his 88 birthday, seemingly enjoyed excellent health, until suddenly being struck down by the onset of pancreatic cancer. Tom’s outstanding police career concluded with his retirement as the Superintendent in Charge of Lismore in 1985.
