Lachlan Macdonald, or Lachie to his friends passed away peacefully at home in New South Wales at 1.40 on the morning of the 18th of August. The clan have lost a greatly admired and valued member of their own.
On behalf of the Scottish border family of Carruthers, our Chief Peter Carruthers of Holmains, our Society, both regionally and internationally, a message of condolences has been sent to his wife Wilga, her family and their friends.
As a highly respected member of both Clan Donald and the Australian clan community at large, it was said about him that very few had the ability to bring so many together in harmony. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
May he rest In peace
