Babcoach Academy founder Peter Babcchak had been hospitalized for a month and had been in hospital since January.
His mother, Sarah Babcchek, told ABC Radio Melbourne that Peter was “truly and totally in good health” but she was devastated to learn of his death.
“He was an incredibly dedicated person and he just wanted to give back to the community and help people who were struggling, so it’s just really devastating news,” Ms Babcchetk said.
“We just want to be able as a family to support him and be there for him.”
Babcach Academy is a community-based, privately run academy that was created in the mid-1990s.
Mr Babcach said he had spent his childhood on the streets and had no interest in attending an academy.
“I never went to any other school and I’ve never been into any kind of sports or anything like that.”
So I’ve always just enjoyed going to school,” he said.
Mr Bacca, a retired Australian of Korean descent, started the company in 2013 and built a reputation as a teacher, mentor and mentor-in-residence.”
Peter was a very generous person who just wanted his children to have the best possible start,” Ms Bacca said.
Babies at the school were given a chance to try the academy before the decision was made to close the program.
The academy, which was opened by Mr Babcacher’s father, Peter, has seen significant growth over the past three years with more than 4,000 children enrolled.
It is still an independent company but its parent company, the Academy of Babcock International, is owned by Babcoach’s parents.
The company, which is a joint venture between Babcoache and a Melbourne-based company, announced the cancellation of the academy on Monday, saying that Mr Babcock had suffered a heart condition on Sunday.”
The academy will be closed, and the entire staff will be suspended,” the academy’s website said.

Our hearts go out to his family at this difficult time.

“Mr Babcock was born in New South Wales and worked as a lawyer and teacher before moving to Victoria in the 1960s.
In 1995, he was awarded the Australian of the Year Award, a prestigious award that recognises the person who best exemplifies the qualities of excellence in public service.”
For me, it’s about giving back to our community, and in particular to our young people, who are the future of the Australian economy,” Mr Babcott said.
In 2016, Mr Babcer founded the Academy, a non-profit organisation that offers career mentoring and leadership training.
He has also written for the National Library of Australia, and founded a new company called Babcoaching Academy.
In 2015, the organisation’s annual report revealed that only one in three of its members had attended an academy before graduating.
The Academy of Babbock, which closed on Monday after being shut down by the Victorian Government, said the decision to close it had been made “after careful consideration”.”
The decision to suspend the Academy and close the programme has been made after careful consideration of the business model, costs and financial resources available, and other factors,” the company said.
