Kimberley Maurice Chance, Saba’s uncle.
Kim was one of our original Trustees when the Saba Rose Button Foundation was established in 2012.
Regrettably and sadly Kim passed away February 2017. Totally unexpected, Kim died of a heart attack near his property in Dandaragan north of Perth.
Formerly the Minister for Agriculture in WA, Kim grew up in Doodlakine in the Eastern wheatbelt of Western Australia.
Kim always had a passion for agriculture and Agribusiness, so it was no surprise that the farm he purchased in Dandaragan was for the sole purpose of accommodating camels for the establishment of camel milk production.
In addition to his Ministry Kim also represented the Labour Party in the Agricultural area between 1992 and 2009 and was leader of the party in the Legislative Council. During this period, Kim served on a number of Ministerial councils for Forestry, Fisheries and Trade.
At the time of his passing Kim was consulting to the UN on food safety while based in Abu Dhabi.
Kim had a significant impact in the formation and governance of the SRBF and will be forever missed.
We are continually reminded of his presence and contribution to Saba’s Foundation and miss him dearly.
