Condolences: Gary Hill, 1939-2022

Mr. Gary Hill, founding father, former Treasurer and Board Member of ICPA, has passed away at age 83.

It is with great sadness to learn that Gary Hill passed away at the age of 83. Gary was one of the ICPA Founding Fathers and made a tremendous contribution to ICPA since our inception as both Treasurer and a Board Member for the Association.
Gary was tireless in his work and activities and always had a smile on his face. In recent years he particularly managed our contribution to European grant projects and continued as the Chair of the ICPA Staff Training and Development Network until the very end.
There was never any professional initiative in his area of expertise that Gary did not take on. He was highly valued by many organisations including the United Nations where he co-ordinated major conferences, most recently during the challenges presented by the pandemic.
We give our thanks to Gary for his committment and dedication to the advancement of professional corrections. This sad news will be received across our corrections community, many of whom will have worked with Gary throughout his international activities and initiatives over the years.
