By Nigel Kenny

It is with deep regret that the Property Institute of New Zealand marks the passing of Bill Burgess.

Bill died in Merrivale Retirement Village, Springs Flat, Whangarei on Tuesday the 21st of May 2019, after a long illness.

Bill was a Registered Valuer, FNZIV FPINZ

During his career he had been an active member of the local branch and had served as the Councillor for Northland.

Born in Gore he spent his early career with the Valuation Department in Northland and Te Kuiti rising to Senior Valuer before acquiring the practice of Morrison Coutts Milburn. Coutts Milburn eventually became Wiseman Burgess Malone before merging with a number of independent practices as Northland Valuers.

Retiring some years ago he managed to concentrate on his other great interest in life lawn bowls, becoming green keeper to two local clubs. Bill continued to provide mentoring and consultancy to junior valuers. He will be sorely missed by his colleagues and friends in the Property Industry in Northland

Bill is survived by his partner Helen, daughter Penny and sons, Greg and Scott. The Property Institute extends its deepest sympathy to Bills Family in their very sad loss.
