Community Recognition Statement - Brian Egan
Community Recognition Statement delivered in the Fifty-Seventh Parliament of New South Wales by the Member for Barwon Roy Butler on 4 February 2020.
Tonight I honour the co-founder of Aussie Helpers, Brian Egan, who sadly passed away in January.
Brian, with his wife, Nerida, founded Aussie Helpers in 2002 and together they worked tirelessly to help regional communities.
Brian was widely respected and admired throughout the Australian farming community.
Brian was the person I would call when I had run out of options to get assistance for people. He always came through in some way.
A military veteran, a true gentleman and a selfless individual who committed to helping others, that was Brian Egan and that is his legacy.
I know many who were personally touched by his generosity and kindness. He is a huge loss to regional Australia.
Brian is survived by his wife, Nerida, and daughters Natasha, Samantha, Kelly and Victoria.
