Centrecare Director

 

From the Director's Desk

The Hon Stephen Thackray

Centrecare pays tribute to our esteemed and much admired Board Member, Stephen Thackray, who passed away unexpectedly 2 April 2020.  Stephen will be remembered for his intellect, humility and wisdom.  Following many years of exceptional service to the West Australian community, most notably as former Chief Judge of the Family Court of WA, Stephen joined the Centrecare Board in 2019. Stephen’s many years of contribution to family law both at State and Federal levels was of a very high order and greatly respected by the legal profession and the broader community. During his time on our Board, Stephen gained the admiration and friendship of fellow Board members. His untimely death at the age of 65 is a great loss which will be felt by many who knew him. Stephen will be sadly missed but his legacy of compassion and fairness for all will remain with us.  It was an honour and privilege to call Stephen both a colleague and friend.
