ASFA was saddened to learn that ASFA Life Member Ray Stevens passed away on Thursday 6 January at age 84.
He was a former Federal President and a much-loved member of the Victorian ASFA community.
Ray also made himself available to comment on a wide range of ASFA submissions and regularly represented ASFA in Canberra attending meetings with Centrelink, the ATO and other related government bodies. His opinions were widely sought after by leading journalists.
Ray was admitted as a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries of Australia in 1964. He gave generously of his time to the profession as a Member of the Ageing Australia Taskforce and Superannuation Projections and Disclosure Subcommittee. Ray received the Actuary of the Year Award in 1990.
He will be remembered as an actuary with a great sense of humour, a quiet achiever, a huge supporter of ASFA, and an “all-round great guy”.
