This infor­ma­tion is taken from the West Aus­tralian Feb­ru­ary 19 2000 it is a full page arti­cle and this is just a small sec­tion about Errol.

Errol Binder died in Feb­ru­ary 8 2000. he was 36. Father of two.
Sol­dier for 6 years in the 1st Bat­tal­ion Royal Aus­tralian Reg­i­ment.
Cam­painer on Abo­rig­i­nal issues, radio broad­caster and pro­ducer for the WA Abo­rig­i­nal Media Asso­ci­a­tion. He also gave uni lec­tures on indige­nous cul­ture in Rome. He inter­viewed and was blessed by the Dalai Lama.

For­ever remem­bered

Errol was in year 8 in my first year of teach­ing in 1977 at SSHS. I am also an ex-​SSHS stu­dent myself. He always had a ready smile and I won­dered if it was the same Errol when I read his name in the West. RIP Errol.

I played foot­ball with Errol dur­ing years 8,9,10 down at Scar­bor­ough foot­ball club which met at Abbott Park. He was a great foot­baller and an absolute gen­tle­man. He had a mean right hook from his left boot when kick­ing and with great accu­racy but oppo­si­tion teams spot­ted this and would run to block him turn­ing right.
At school he was a reg­u­lar stu­dent but approach­able by one and all even though he was up with the other elite sports stars of the school.

I was sad­dened to read of his loss as it is a loss for all.
