Max Pawsey

January 21, 2011 | No Comments | News

Today I received notification that Max Pawsey passed away last night.  He had been ill for a brief time.  Max Pawsey was a City Engineer at Berwick and Coburg very active in the Institute of Municipal Engineers until his retirement in the early 1990’s.  He went on to write a number of publications around the engineering principles behind building of the pyramids and was the author of Lances column which was published regularly in the local Berwick newspaper. 

Max was very much involved with the IME.  He was an inspirational engineer and well liked.  He even has a reserve named after him in Narre Warren.  His memory will live on in the communities in which he served.   Some of you may know of Mr Pawsey and the municipal engineering work he undertook.
