It is with great sadness we inform our community that Transplant Australia Life Member and Queensland Chair, Richard Hayes, passed away on Friday, April 12.

Richard and his wife Anne were for many years the backbone of Transplant Australia in Queensland attending many Australian and World Transplant Games. Richard held the 100m sprint record at the World Transplant Games for his age group for a number of years. They contributed significantly to the Local Organising Committee for the World Transplant Games on the Gold Coast in 2009.

He was made a Life Member of Transplant Australia in 2015.

It was pleasing to be able to speak with Richard last week and pass on the love and thanks of our community.

The celebration of his life will be held on Wednesday 24 April 2024 at 10am, at Newhaven Crematorium, Stapylton in Brisbane.

The service will also be livestreamed here. Please enter the following PIN number to access: 2437.

Rest in peace.

Chris Thomas
