    Jon, it was a privilege to know you. From Windarring times to hanging out at your home, cooking together, playing games (sometimes you let me win!), talking footy and swapping local news. We enjoyed weekend trips out with the gang. In recent times, working together on communication support taught me so much. You could teach the app designers a thing or two! So willing to learn and be creative. Never saying ‘No’ to one of Daryl’s workout sessions. Whenever I picked you up in the afternoon, you asked me, “How was your day?” Cheers mate.

    To us you were an inspiration Jon, although we only caught up at family events and gatherings you always were the life of the party,
    never let anything get you down and always had time for us Queensland kids.
    You will be deeply missed but never forgotten.
    Forever in our hearts

    My thoughts are with you through this hard time. Sending all my love.

    Jon, you were one of the most courageous people I knew. You dared life and you’ve created impactful projects to show for it. You grew your wings and you are now at peace. Your memories will forever live on.
    Aunty Lois will be waiting with open arms. Enjoy your time now back with your mum. Until we meet again.
    Rest in peace!

    All our love Kyralee and Mitchell

    Love and Condolences to Ray, Jane, Ross, Rhys, Joel and Koby.

    No words can say how we feel after hearing the sad news of Jon’s passing.
    We will cherish our family memories together forever.

    Jon …
    Your attitude of never letting obstacles get in the way, your wit and sheer determination never went un-noticed.

    So many wonderful memories of playing as kids, skipping around the yard and when you had enough, you would turn direction and crash into us.

    Lazy Saturday mornings watching cartoons and playing stacks on … just to say a few.

    Your love of working as an adult and how proud you were of your job, was always a talking point when we caught up, along with you rattling off the answers whilst watching quiz shows.

    You will be truly missed mate.
    But we know you are now back in the arms of your beautiful Mum and all our Family Angels.

    Forever in our hearts
    Jodi and Darren

    Go the Hot Pies!
