VALE

BOB MUNDAY HLM 40

It is with sadness that I have to inform you of the death of Bob Munday on Friday 5th February 2016 after a short illness.

Bob had been a member of the IPA since 1979. He had held positions in the IPA at both Regional and National level and devoted a great deal of his time to the Association. 

He was one of the few to be awarded the Honorary Life Membership

I am sure that you all will join me in offering our condolences to Denise and family.

The funeral will be in The Police Chapel at the Goulburn Police Academy 1 McDermott Drive Goulburn, on Friday 12th February at 1pm.
