Branded a ‘true gentleman of the profession” and an ‘absolute legend’, some thanked him for the help and guidance he’d provided them with, whilst others maintained that he will ‘go down in history.’

Neel Radia, national chair of the NACC who earlier this year presented Mr Kellow with honorary membership to the association praised his outstanding contribution to the sector

Hobart sales director, Tim Bender, and co-colleague for over 25 years commented on the tributes. He said: “Roger is the definition of the word gentleman. Always smiling, always with time to help others and always trying to make a difference in the industry he loves. It’s with a heavy heart that we lose him from our day to day operations, but his impact will be felt for years to come.”

He added: “Fortunately, this is not goodbye forever as Roger has agreed to return in a consultancy role, but in the meantime everyone here at Hobart wishes him all the best in his semi-retirement which is so truly deserved.”
