Vale William Fenner

Bill Fenner at the Society in 2013

The Council of the Royal Society of Victoria records with sadness the passing of a much valued member in Mr William Fenner on 21 August, 2017 at the age of 95.

A member since 2001, Bill was a regular feature at the Society’s lectures and events until moving into care last year. An engineer with expertise in quality and productivity improvement and a keen interest in geology, geophysics, evolutionary biology and international politics, he was a forthright individual, brim full of ideas and a memorable feature of the Society’s meetings, forums and events.

Fondly remembered by all who knew him. Our thoughts and condolences are with Monnie and family at this sad time.
