Remembering Stan Perron AM

in Latest News, Stories of Independence

VisAbility’s Board, executive, staff and clients extend heartfelt sympathy to the Perron family in remembrance of Stan Perron AM, a truly remarkable and inspirational man.

As VisAbility Life Members, Stan and Jean and their family have been significant supporters of our work, particularly our children’s services.

Stan’s involvement with VisAbility goes back almost 60 years, when he was inspired to support our organisation by his cousin, Rita Patching. He used his considerable influence to highlight our important work to government, the corporate world and the community.

Stan believed in us and what we could do.

Stan’s compassion and generosity contributed to life-changing opportunities for so many. He will be missed and fondly remembered.
