Vale Bill Gorrie

We are saddened to learn of the passing of Bill Gorrie from the Kalgoorlie Quarantine & Inspection facility. Bill was the stock inspector who had devoted his working time to The Department of Agriculture WA for more than 30 years and was responsible for the design and implementation of the current facility in Kalgoorlie which will go down as Bills Legacy and remain something he was very proud of. Bill was very passionate about the facility and he worked diligently to ensure the WA agriculture sector was protected from any animal or plant related diseases entering WA via Kalgoorlie under his watch. Bill was always very helpful and accommodating to make sure the processes went as smoothly as possible and at times of fires, floods and more recently Covid he was always obliging, as the most eastern of WA contact with helpful information to keep everyone safe and well informed.
We send our condolences to his family and work colleagues. RIP Bill.
