Vale: Brian Terence Falconer OAM
The Carlton community has lost a committed and active local resident with the recent passing of Brian Falconer.
Throughout his time in Carlton, Brian engaged in numerous activities, which have contributed to the wellbeing of many in the community.
He served actively in the Tennis club, and the Carlton Residents Association, worked with CoM promoting the Opportunities for Carlton project and in 2013 was awarded a Melbourne MPs Volunteer Award.
He was very active in issues relating to the Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens.
His involvement inevitably meant leadership roles.
These are some of the obvious contributions he made.
In addition he worked quietly behind the scenes supporting a wide spectrum of work within the community with warmth, friendship and good sense. One such example, drawing on his accountancy training, was advising a secondary school student exchange organization on how to achieve a satisfactory auditing relationship. Another is his support of the Carlton Gardens Tennis Program assisting local primary school children, many with a refugee background and living locally in the public housing estate.
He was honoured with a well deserved OAM in 2015.
CRA mourns his passing and extends heartfelt condolences to his wife Pauline and the extended family.
