Queensland Volunteer Fire-fighter dies on fire-ground
It is the saddest possible news that the Association is now passing on, and the thoughts of all of the Association Representatives and Staff are with the family and friends of Graham (Butch) Walker of Gillespie Station and a fire-fighter with Eastwood Rural Fire Brigade.
Butch was tragically killed while undertaking a hazard reduction burn on a property near Blackall in the Central Region.
Friday, 25th of November will see a public memorial service held at 3pm for Butch at ‘Gillespie’ Station, which is 30klm east of Blackall.
Once again, the Association and all Volunteers would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to Butch’s wife Peta and their children, Alex, Sheree and Troy.
