Default Vale Maurie Monk

11 January 2011

Vale Maurie Monk

It is with deep regret that CAMS records the passing today of Maurice Hider Monk, at the Epworth Hospital, in the company of his wide family, following a heart attack. His life was most remarkable, and he leaves an extraordinary legacy to the whole nation. First and foremost, he was the patriarch of a family whose talents and success gave him quiet pride and satisfaction. As an engineer of the old school, his knowledge and skills equipped him to address any issue with calm confidence. As a soldier, he served the nation with courage and distinction. As an architect of CAMS in 1952 and then as the founding president, he established the principles and standards which made Australia the most respected motor sport nation. Maurie continued actively in CAMS for the whole of his life as a volunteer official, as a competitor, as an event organiser and as a member of the Appeal Court. As a friend, leader, mentor and statesman, he will never be matched. Australia and motor sport mourn Maurie’s passing, and we offer our condolences to Margaret and all the family.
