It is with sadness that the Department advises the community of the passing of Mr Grant Barons yesterday.

Grant worked with the Territories Program for over 28 years. He held a number of positions in territories administration including being the Official Secretary and Acting Administrator of the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, the Director of the Territories Perth Office, and stints as the Director of our local administration offices on the Cocos (Keeling) Islands and Christmas Island.

Grant had an extensive knowledge of the territories, particularly Cocos (Keeling) Islands where he lived and worked for many years. He maintained a deep and abiding affection for the islands and their communities.

I wish to extend the condolences of the Department's staff to Grant's family, friends and colleagues.
