The Royal Flying Doctor Service would like to pay respects to the man from country Boree Creek, who became the Deputy Prime Minister and Nationals leader of Australia. 

Tim Fischer served as national board chair of the Royal Flying Doctor Service and we would like to recognise his dedication and passion for the service. He will be greatly missed by all.
