Geoff Bracher was a Shire Engineer for over 30 years with positions at Shire of Gisborne (cira 1960-65), Shire of Violet Town (1965-71), Shire of Winchelsea (1971-89).  He also worked for a period with the State Electricity Commission in Yallourn.  Friends and former colleagues of Geoff’s are advised of his passing on 12/3/2013

Geoff’s son, Chris, describes his fathers engineering career as follows:

“Dad typified the “old-style” country Shire Engineer.   He interpreted his role more broadly than a Monday-Friday job and involved himself in the fabric of the communities which he served. Many would interpret his style as “steady” and without professional stardom but his notions of fairness, diligence and empathy for the community interests are qualities that made us very proud of him.”
