Graeme Lyall AM (1931 - 2015) It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Graeme Lyall today. Graeme was the founding Chair of the Buddhist Council of NSW in 1985. After retirement in 2006 he remained very active within the community, and as a much respected Prison Chaplain. Graeme's passing was peaceful, on this very auspicious Vesak day.
