IT IS with great regret that we advise Jim Sinclair, a customs broker for WH Dyson in Melbourne since 1974, passed away in the early hours of Friday morning.

Jim was a true gentlemen with a highly competitive spirit, yet very humble and modest about his achievements.

At age 96 Jim was still working and until recently also running marathons in Masters Games. Jim, his son and father all held Australian wrestling titles and all highly regarded. by their peers 

Jim’s first client was a big timber importer and is still a client of Dysons.

Jim continued to look after this company even after he had health issues two years ago. His son said that continuing to do declarations gave him a reason to get out of bed every day.

Jim will be missed by all who knew him.
