RIP John ‘Strop’ Cornell
We would like to express our heartfelt condolences on the passing of local resident John 'Strop' Cornell, previous owner of the Beach Hotel and producer of Crocodile Dundee, who has died at his home in Byron Bay surrounded by his wife Delvene Delaney and family ❤️

John and Delvene generously supported many local organisations including the Byron Community Centre. The Cornell family were pivotal in the opening of the Byron Theatre which acts as a social enterprise to support services and programs for our community's most vulnerable. We are so thankful for John and Delvene's support of the Byron Community Centre and Byron Theatre which has truly made a difference 🙏

"A classic Australian character, John Cornell made the lives he touched much richer, not only through donations, but also through his generosity of spirit, humour, humility and honour. A true egalitarian, John sought equity and equality, and fought for a fair go." - Cornell family statement

Our hearts go out to Delvene and all of John's family and friends. We will be forever grateful for his generosity of spirit ❤️
