WFI Board members and staff were saddened to hear of the recent death of Roland Simpson on October 22, 2004. Roland was a Fellow in 1998 and more recently worked as a forester with Forests of New South Wales in their Investment Services Division. Roland died as a result of injuries sustained in a BASE jumping mishap in China. Roland’s ever-optimistic attitude and broad smile will surely be missed both here in Portland as well as in Australia.
