    Many wonderful memories of a dedicated compassionate doctor whose priority was patient care. Originally under your care when I transferred from PMH in 1988 you admitted CF wasn't your forte and transferred me to the CF team. However, you always asked how I was and always had time for a chat. Your wicked sense of humour and presence will never be forgotten at Respiratory Medicine SCGH.

    Deepest sympathy to Criena, Michael and Gabrielle.

    Forever in our hearts.

    I remember Bill and his family well from our days as neighbours in Wharf St, Queens Park.

    His mother Jean was an advocate for higher education and "Mrs Musk" as we called her and my mother Marjorie had many conversations about its importance.

    I remember the kindness that was shown to us when we visited the "nice house next door".

    Catching up online now with Bill's achievements has brought a flood of memories of him and his family.

    A brilliant career.

    It is with heavy hearts that we acknowledge the passing of our beloved Specialist, Professor Bill Musk AM. Prof Musk has been a friend to the ADSA and its members for almost 40 years. He was committed to Public Health and the role it must play in protecting the lives of all Australians. While big business tried to cover up and hope those exposed to deadly asbestos fibre in Wittenoom would be forgotten, Prof Musk pioneered research into Asbestos Diseases and donated countless hours working with sufferers and their families. Rest in Peace Bill, you will be remembered as a hero, friend, leader and compassionate Doctor who valued all humanity. Heartfelt sympathy to Criena and all the family. On behalf of our Committee, Staff and Members.
