Vale Past RI Director and Treasurer Brian Knowles

Rotary lost a true superstar with the passing of past RI Director and Treasurer Brian Knowles on March 8 at the age of 89. He is survived by his daughter Janelle and a large extended family.

Brian joined the Rotary Club of Sandgate, Qld, in 1960 and quickly became president in 1963-64. He served as governor of what is now District 9600 in 1969-70, at the very young age of 38. His district conference that year included an evening outdoor event and he once remarked that six hours after that function finished there was a tropical downpour that lasted for days!
