Dad, Pop, Great grand poppy, your whistling, singing and the spoons around the table and camp fire, fishing, swimming, gardening, your love of collecting things will continue on forever with the next generation.  The love you gave will live on in your family.

but you would have the last laugh…Ha Ha Dad.

Look out mum, here comes dad so who got the last laugh.

RIP Dad, say hello to Mum.

    Dad you got your wings and left us, our memories of you will be with me for my life time.
    The wood cutting days the tractor ride siting on the wheel arch, going out to get rabbits, those bloody ferrets, the time you came swimming down at Castlemaine pool the memories just keep coming, cleaned out your clothes with you and guess what we found my god the same bathers you wore swimming the gold colour ones.
    Going on holidays over to Adelaide singing 10 green bottles hanging on the wall, except we would start at 100 bottles.
    The fishing trips up the river never caught many, always had fun the card nights and you had one to many drinks and did handstands against the wall, should have emptied your pockets first because us kids had fun collecting your pocket change.
    What an amazing man you were, you and mum raised 8 kids all on one wage and paid off a house, had hard times fun times thank you I am proud to have you as my dad love and miss you RIP ❤ Mary

    I love you Poppy … you’re the best Pop anyone could have.

    Pop / great pop you will be missed but the memories will last a lifetime. I remember being your tail as a child, following you around the house or coming with you while you went here and there. I loved the camping trips to the Murray and hated it if you and Nan went on holidays without me. If I wasn’t with Mum then I was happiest with you and Nan. There is not a place on earth that made me feel as safe and secure as your home. I would be so excited when you visited and so sad when you left. Like others I never mastered the art of yodeling but you tried so hard to teach me. You always gave me wise advice and reminded me; “don’t worry, be happy”. We couldn’t have wished for a better grandfather and my kids a great grandfather. I know you loved us dearly and I hope that as we continue on life’s journey we do you proud. Love you forever your granddaughter Kelly, Rob and great grandkids Joshua, Isaac, Brendan, Sapphire and Rosalie.

    To Keith’s family and friends.
    I was saddened to hear the passing of ‘Skippy’ a treasured member of our community here in Castlemaine.
    I will miss our chats in the street.

  6. Allen, Jacob and Mackenzie Osborn says:

    Keith to us was a loving pop and father. He will be greatly missed and our memories of him will be forever cherished in our hearts. He will always be remembered for his big goofy smile and cheeky personality. He would forever be knocking over the card towers we had built and stirring up his children, even once they were grown up! He was kind, selfless and always making those around him happier. He taught us all to appreciate the small things in life, the same way that he did. Well Dad/Pop, as you would say, you have made it home before dark. Say hello to everyone up there for us, we love and miss you so much.

  9. Hannah, Michael and Aaliyah Connor says:

    Pop, you are gone, but not forgotten, and always and forever in our hearts.
    We will always remember your whistle as you walked around the garden, we were so blessed to have you in our life.
    Aaliyah will miss her great Pop and the special times she has spent with you around the table at home.
    We will always treasure those memories.
    Rest easy now Pop. ❤️
