Vale Peter Burnett AM 1950 – 2019

On Thursday 18th April 2019, our Chairman and good mate Peter Burnett sadly passed away! His wife Jan, son Nick and daughter Emma were at his bedside.

Peter was a natural leader and worked tirelessly and enthusiastically in all of his roles. He led the Australian Hotels Association in Victoria and, nationally, was a director of Visit Victoria, Tourism Australia, a former Geelong Football Club director and was Chairman of the E.J. Whitten Foundation.

We are all deeply saddened by Peter’s passing all to early and offer our condolences to Jan, Nick, Emma and the family.

Peter had a profound ­and positive impact on all who knew him. His leadership of the Foundation led to over $13 million being raised for research and treatment of cancer, the establishment of the E.J. Whitten Foundation Prostate Cancer Research Centre at Epworth and resulted in thousands of Australian men’s lives being saved through research and treatment trials funded by the Foundation as well as the awareness and education programs run in the community that led to early detection of men’s health issues.  

Peter will be an unbelievable loss to the E.J. Whitten Foundation and the community as a whole.

The Foundation will remember him through the work we do promoting men’s health, fundraising for cancer research and treatment and through making our community a better place…just as Peter did.

Vale Peter.
