Some very sad news regarding Les Collett


Dear APLMA Members,

It is with a heavy heart that I am writing to you today to convey the extraordinarily sad news of the passing of Les Collett, our APLMA Director and Company Secretary. Les recently underwent a serious heart operation and seemed to recovering nicely, but the cruel hand of fate took him from us last week and the world is now a much poorer place.

Les served the APLMA as both a Board Director and as a member of the Executive Committee for 11 years, initially as Treasurer for several years and then as Company Secretary for the last 7 years.  As many of you will know, Les embraced the various roles he took on with tremendous enthusiasm and good humour, frequently taking on thankless tasks behind the scenes without complaint. He was also a stalwart supporter of APLMA conferences, events and other activities – especially the golf days, which he loved so much.

We send his wife Kim and his family our deepest condolences and wish them strength at this most difficult of times. Les, our friend and colleague, please rest in peace. We are going to miss you and you will not be forgotten.
