Members statements – Stephen Myall

Mr J. BULL (Sunbury) (15:29:03) — Like the member for Melton, I rise to express my condolences on the passing of a much-loved and respected magistrate, Stephen Myall. Stephen, the partner of the former member for Macedon, Joanne Duncan, was a wonderful, kind, caring and compassionate person, from working in suburban courts like Geelong, Sunshine and Broadmeadows to setting up a legal partnership with a colleague. His passion for those who needed help the most was not overlooked. This is a devastating loss, although I am certain that the impression Steve left on those around him will live on, as will the difference he made to this state. I extend my deepest sympathy to Joanne, Stevie, his friends, his family and his colleagues at this sad time. He will be greatly missed.
