John Rorison, a former Gunner who served on Yorke Island, passed away on 12 December 2022. He was very supportive of the work that is taking place on the Island. As Ross Keller says:
I am very saddened to inform everyone that John Rorison passed this morning. Without John, we wouldn't be where we are with Yorke Island. FULL STOP.
It's never easy to lose a friend and this one hits hard.
And thank you John, for everything.
