“Dr More was an incredibly active community leader who volunteered in various roles.”
“I pass on my sincere condolences to Dr More’s family and the entire Woolgoolga community following his passing”.
Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh said Dr More was a beloved member of the Woolgoolga community and Sikh Australian community in NSW.
“He was a GP to four generations of my family and many other families like ours in the Woolgoolga community,” Mr Singh said.
“His practice manager told me that Dr More had nearly 20,000 patients, such was his work ethic and love of the job.”
“Dr More was a community-minded man who gave his time and considerable intellect to many causes, most notably to the building of the new First Sikh temple building, which opened early 2019.”
Dr More OAM’s son Ashley More said his father had left a lasting legacy in NSW and he was honoured that he had been posthumously recognised by the NSW Government.
“My father has left a huge legacy behind him. We are overwhelmed at his recognition through the Premier’s Multicultural Honour Roll,” Mr More said.
“We could not be more proud that his legacy will continue to live on in our community.”
