Australia's Economic Hall of Fame
Nomination - 2/3/2011 - Ronald Kitching (1929 2011)
A legend leaves us with many memories.
A very close personal friend and a great contributor to the freedom philosophy, Ronald Kitching (aged 81), quietly passed away at Rockhampton, Queensland, on Wednesday, 2nd March, 2011.
Having led a remarkable life, in such diverse fields as drilling contractor - Glindemann & Kitching, author, economic and philosophical observer and family man, his passing is a great loss to the civilised fabric of Australian life.
My family, staff and colleagues were blessed by his guidance and friendship.
