It is with great sadness we advise the passing of John Clohessy on Saturday the 27 September after a three year battle with cancer, a fight fought well and unknown to many.
Clohessy was passionate about his vision for the betterment of cleaning and property services industry, and will be remembered through his companies Changing Directions, Better Managed Contracts and CiMAS technologies.
Clohessy was dedicated to the time he gave to the Building Service Contractors Association of Australia (BSCAA) for more than 10 years, as well as four years as the Victorian association’s executive director. Clohessy is survived by dear friend Pat in Melbourne, his children and grand children in Perth.
Clohessy’s drive and vision will surely be missed long into the future by his associates, colleagues and friends, but mostly by his brother Mike and sister Marcelle, who after having worked side by side with him for the past 20 years, will pick up the baton and carry it forward to complete what they stated together so long ago.
The funeral will be at the Tobin Brothers Glenroy Chapel, 111 Wheatsheaf Rd, Glenroy, on Friday the 3 October at 10am. There will also be another service held in Perth in the near future.
BSCAA national president George Stamas shared his personal condolences. “John was a passionate contributor to our industry and was instrumental in reinvigorating the Victorian Branch of the BSCAA through his support of the Board at a national level,” said Stamas. “He tirelessly educated people in the industry to achieve and award sustainable cleaning contracts. Our thoughts are with his family and loved ones at this difficult time.”
