Death of Ted Tobin OAM

I am very saddened to learn today of the death of Ted Tobin.

I last had the pleasure of talking with Ted Tobin at the launch of the new premises of Headspace Illawarra as Ted was a great supporter of mental health services for young people.

Ted Tobin served the local community in many roles over the last thirty years. He was an alderman on Wollongong City Council, served on the Wollongong Sportsground Trust, and also as chairman of the Illawarra County Council.

Ted Tobin was passionate about sport, and did much as a sport administrator to promote it - and to ensure that recreational and sport infrastructure was developed in the region.

His contribution to serving the local community was recognised by an Award in the Order of Australia in 1995.

Ted Tobin’s was a true Wollongong gentleman and his contribution and service to our local community will be missed.

I extend my deepest sympathy to Beverley and his extended family.
