ALRTA Special News


The ALRTA is saddened by the passing today of charismatic industry heavy weight Noel Hoare.

Noel was instrumental in the establishment of both the LBCA and the ALRTA.  He served as the ALRTA National President 1990-1992 and was inducted as a Life Member in 1994.

Noel also served as a director on the Board of Management of the ATA, receiving the ATA National Award for ‘Outstanding Contribution to the Australian Trucking Industry’ and the Champions Award for ‘Service to the Australian Trucking Industry’ in 2000.

In 2010 he was inducted into the Road Transport Hall of Fame.

Noel started out in the road transport industry in 1958 driving for his father who had a one-truck carrying business in conjunction with the family property at Yarrowitch, 50km east of Walcha NSW.  He married in 1965 and soon after started his own trucking business.

In 1990, Noel entered a business partnership with Jim Savage, forming a new company that still operates today as Stockmaster.

Over the years Noel fought for and won many reforms with lasting benefits including the introduction of mandatory speed limiters and the move from 30 X 30 foot B-doubles to today’s common place 20 X 40 foot combination.

Noel has also been active in serving his local community on the Ambulance Service Management Committee and the Volunteer Fire Brigade for some 25 years.

Noel led a full life and improved the lives of many others. He is survived by his wife Mary, son Graeme, daughter Susan, and three grandchildren.

Our thoughts are with the Hoare family, and Noel’s friends and colleagues as they remember and celebrate his remarkable life.

The funeral for Noel Hoare will be held at 2.30pm on Monday 17th August at St Andrews Anglican Church, 5 South Street, Walcha and followed by internment at the Walcha Beam Cemetery.
