I met Steven within the last 2 years and have found him to be good honest man that had the community at heart. His job was to ensure the Bus Companies were compliant to their contracts. He would be the one that recommends bus services changes to bus companies after reviewing due process.
I have been informed that the Office where he was working in Parramatta was moving to 18 Lee Street, Parramatta in 3 weeks and Steven had mapped out his travel plans before he passed away
I remember 2 times when I had visited him for almost 2 hours and we had a comfortable chat about our issues and he was supportive towards our demands. What made him support of us was he was a local Mount Druitt community member as well, I now believe he had a young family. The second time I rang him and he said unable to speak long as was organising buses for an individual festival for that coming weekend for buses to move people. He never stopped short of talking to me and also another member of our group, Peter Kerr.
On behalf of Mount Druitt Commuters Improvement Group Inc. and the Mount Druitt transport community, Peter and myself offer ours\ deepest sympathy for the sudden tragic loss of Steve Wilkinson, to his family and working family. and thank him for assisting us along our goals.
