Vale – John Forbes OAM

“John has such a significant impact on our Foundation and the lives of so many. He will be dearly missed”

Our Board, CEO and the Blue Ribbon Foundation family are so deeply saddened at the sudden passing of John Forbes OAM the first Chairman of the Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation.

John was a founding member of the Tynan-Eyre Memorial Foundation, which then became the Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation in 1998. He was also well known by sporting greats across Australia and around the World; as the National Promotions Manager for Puma and as a good and trusted friend to so many.

John had such an amazing impact with his support of charity groups, community and sporting organisations. He will always be remembered.

Our deepest sympathies to his wife Fay, their sons David and Peter and the extended family. John was very much loved and respected, he will be greatly missed.
