Bernard Douglas (Bernie) Banton AM
1946 ~ 2007

Mr Banton, who led the fight to force building products giant James Hardie
to establish a $4 billion fund to compensate thousands of asbestos victims,
died at his Sydney home on Tuesday November 27, with his family by his bedside.

Bernie had been a keen player of tennis, squash and golf, and a deep sea fisherman.

He will be sadly missed by his family, and the many people he so valiantly sought justice for.
