In Loving Memory – Bob Whiteway (OH ’50)
Bob Whiteway (OH ’50) sadly passed away in his sleep on 11 September 2021. Bob’s daughter Jane had been caring for Bob in her home, with Bob receiving palliative care in recent weeks.
Bob was an engaged member of our community and a wonderful supporter of our Clark Club lunches.
He was a teacher at Beaumaris Secondary College for 37 years teaching PE, Geography and Economics. In 2018, the Resource Centre at the school was named after him.
Bob was a long standing and well respected member of the community of Bayside. He was well known in the community through his lifelong passion for the environment, in particular, his dedication towards the coastal and marine environment. In 2003, he was named Bayside Citizen of the Year and was awarded an OAM in 2013 for contribution to conservation and the environment.
Our thoughts are with Bob’s family during this difficult time.
