Vale Bill Cooper OAM

With the passing of Bill in the early hours of 1 January 2017, the rowing community in Western Australia has lost one of the Legends of the sport.

Bill was a driving force in Rowing WA for more than sixty years and no words can convey the magnitude of his contribution during that time.

He was a friend, mentor and inspiration for many generations of rowers and more particularly officials of rowing at both a State and Australian level.

We extend our condolences to Ailsa, James, Diana, Helen and Elizabeth and their Families at this time.

Bill's funeral service will be held on Thursday, 12th January 2017 at 10.00am in the West Chapel at Fremantle Cemetary.
