About Richard Utting

It is with great sadness that we have to report Richard passed away in May 2024. RIP and condolences to all his family and friends.

Richard Utting was a senior criminal defense lawyer, former ABC broadcaster and an ex-Mayor of the City of Fremantle. Added to that he was one of an extremely small number of conscripted Australian Officers sent to serve in the Vietnam War.

His life wasan amazing journey and the book “Out of Sight” is a magnificent, at times funny and at others poignant, reflection on what he considered to be, his accidental life.
