John Strang

We are sad to inform Club Members of the passing of John Strang AO, who died peacefully at home on 29 September 2016 after a long illness.

He was a distinguished member of our Club and made an enormous contribution to our Club both financially in his support for the ‘Baxter and Grimshaw Trust’ and by sponsoring discussion on historical aspects of the maritime industry.

“He lived a life of purpose, of achievement and most importantly lived a life filled with great love; a deep love for family, for friends, for colleagues and for life itself.”

“John was a humble man, and for him, actions spoke far louder than words. He was an amazing Father, Husband, Grandfather, Friend, Mentor, Visionary, Entrepreneur, Chairman and Industry Leader. But most of all he was a wonderful human being.

John was appointed to an Officer (AO) of the Order of Australia on June 13, 2016 for distinguished service to the transport and logistics sector through executive roles in progressing industry development, and to professional business organisation.

“John’s wishes were to have a private family service. Therefore, a web page has been set up where condolences can be posted
