Statement on the passing of Bruce Green

I am deeply shocked and saddened by the tragic passing of Bruce Green over the weekend.

Bruce was a larger than life character and almost seemed indestructible. He called a spade a shovel but he was the genuine article. He was the most passionate country man I’ve ever met. He loved agricultural shows, he loved rodeos, he loved farming and he loved country life.

Bruce was a rough diamond with a heart of gold who made an enormous contribution to his beloved Lower Clarence and the wider community.

He will be sorely missed and will leave a big hole in our hearts.

I extend my sincere condolences to his family.

Chris Gulaptis MP, Member for Clarence
