It is with great sadness that we mourn the passing of Mr John Beattie.
Mr Beattie served as the Liberal Member for Franklin in the State Parliament from 1972-1989, and held the position of Chair of Committees during the Gray Liberal Government from 1982-1989.
In his retirement John was an active member of the Lindisfarne branch and was well-known to many.
I would like to acknowledge the support and contribution Mr Beattie made to the Liberal Party over his many years as a member.
On behalf of the Tasmanian Government, I extend my deepest condolences to Mr Beattie’s wife Melinda and his entire family.
