Our club is very sad to advise the passing of one of our longest serving and best loved Rotarians. Kevin Williams passed away peacefully on Monday night leaving a hole in our club and our hearts which will be very hard to fill. Kevin was an Active Member of Rotary International and our Club for 37 years. He was Club President in 1989/1990 and his dedicated service had been recognised along the way by the awards of a Paul Harris Fellow and a Sapphire Pin. Kevin was Club Treasurer for 11 years, had been the Attendance Officer for many years, and served on the Board for over 15 years. Kevin was always one of the first to volunteer for each local project of Umina Rotary. His presence among us was always as a thorough gentleman with a wicked smile and a twinkle in his eye. As a tribute to his contribution to our club Kevin was recently awarded our club’s first ever Life Membership Award. The award was made at a special ceremony at his home in Empire Bay which was attended by Kevin’s daughters Tracey and Melissa and his son Brad. Kevin was also actively involved in Probus. He was the inaugural Secretary of the Probus Club of Umina Everglades when it was formed by Umina Rotary in 2002. He was the second President of that Probus Club and served on its Management Committee for many years.
