  • Master Builders Assocation of WA honors the memory of Barry Knowles

    March 2017

    Condolences to family and friends of Barry Knowles who died in December following nearly seven years with Mesothelioma.

    Born in the UK, Mr Knowles came to Australia as a ’10 pound Pom’.

    He was a qualified carpenter and worked as a contract administrator for JOBEC during the 1980-90s.

    Mr Knowles was devoted to his faith, and committed to finding a cure for Mesothelioma. He founded the Reflections Through Reality Foundation, now being co-ordinated by his daughter Jo Morris, with all funds raised being directed to Mesothelioma research at the Harry Perkins Institute. Master Builders has designated Reflections Through Reality as one of its charities this year.
