By Councillor Nathan Zamprogno
I was tremendously saddened to hear this morning of the passing of former Hawkesbury City Councillor, Paul Rasmussen of Yarramundi.
Paul served on Council for 22 years and I had the pleasure of serving with him from 2016 to 2021. We’ve known each other most of my adult life.
He gave 30 years of service to the RAAF, including five years as Base Commander of RAAF Richmond.
He served on many, many community groups and committees including Chairman of the Friends of the Hawkesbury Art Community, Chairman of Hawkesbury Community Radio, and as a member of the Kurrajong Community Forum and Hawkesbury Sports Council.
Paul represented a huge well of wisdom and shared memory about the Hawkesbury community. Ill-health precluded him standing for Council at the recent elections and my sympathies are with Paul’s family.
Paul will be sorely missed. Vale, Paul Rasmussen.
