It is with great sadness that the officers and members of the Craigieburn Unit, Victoria State Emergency Service hear about the passing of Chris Beattie. He was a very dear friend to the unit and his presence at our functions, particularly our annual dinner dance, will be sorely missed.
Chris was such a friendly, down-to-earth bloke, that he would have been friends with anyone he met. His sense of humour was infectious and his passion for flying obvious for all. But most importantly was his tremendous support for Liz’s chosen vocation as a member of State Parliament. You could always rely on Chris being where ever Liz was showing his support for her and the Party she represents.
Our deepest condolences to Liz and all of Chris’s family and friends during this sad time.
Martin Ledwich, Controller, Craigieburn SES
