Statement on the Hon Tim Fischer AC
The Nationals family and our nation have today lost a truly great Australian with the very sad passing of the Hon Tim Fischer AC.
Tim Fischer was a soldier, a farmer, a politician, a leader, an ambassador, an author, a husband, a father and above all a person of great dignity and honour.
He personified the true Australian spirit. A spirit he espoused right to the end.
We pay great tribute and honour to Tim Fischer’s life of service to our nation – from battlefields on foreign lands to the halls of the Commonwealth Parliament – he was an outstanding, dedicated and remarkable Australian.
Our sincerest thoughts and prayers are with Tim’s wife Judy and two children Harrison and Dominic at this very sad time.
The Hon Larry Anthony
The National Party of Australia
