Fremantle has lost a passionate and popular community member with the passing of Nicolas Gurr, partner of Helen Cox, and father of Georgia and Jacob.
Nic is seen above (top) at the 2020 AGM of the Fremantle Society at the Fremantle Arts Centre with (right to left): Helen Cox, Dr Carmen Lawrence, Sue John, and Elizabeth Megroz.

Nic had a passion for Fremantle, and served the Fremantle Society as its Vice President on five different occasions - 1996, 2001, 2004, 2007, and 2008. He was also a committee member in 1997, 1998, 2006, 2010, 2011, and 2014. Nic knew the issues of the day well and was always ready to help foster good outcomes in the community. He even ran (unsuccessfully) for council in the Beaconsfield ward against the mighty party machinery that dominates local government these days.
The Fremantle Society is grateful for the unwavering support given by Nic to the Society and the many issues it constantly deals with. Nic was very busy for many years running his business, National Linemarkers, but he always found time for the community issues that needed attention.
Nic's funeral will be at Fremantle Cemetery at 2pm on Wednesday October 12th.
