    It is with a heavy heart that I offer my condolences to my cousins and all those who loved Len.
    The eldest among a rare and beautiful group of siblings who lost their father way too young, placing a huge responsibility on a young Len capable of supporting and guiding his brothers and sisters. I always seeked approval from Len as he was poised, respected and didn’t tolerate my fool.
    I will continue to think of Len as our dad’s older brother who with his presence of gentle seniority was so influential in all our lives, and once again reunited with Bernadette.

    With many happy memories of Len and Bernadette during our time in Robinvale.
    Wonderful times to remember with the best friends ever. They will be greatly missed.
    I am so glad that I was able to attend the service today via livestream.
    Love to Meg, Chris, Nick and James and families.

  4. Margaret Arter (nee Norris) says:

    Our dear big brother, Len, is now at peace and knows everyone and everything.
    While growing up with him in our home at West Ivanhoe, he was a tremendous support to our Mum, Rose, a war widow. His manner was quiet and gentle, but he kept us young ones in our place if we did anything wrong. But he always encouraged us all our lives and was a great brother and friend. One memory I have is his coming home from the Saturday night dance and turning on the wireless in the kitchen to listen to Geoff Brooks Supper Club and then showing us the latest jive moves.
    We will never forget you, Len, our big brother.
    Love from Marg and Frank.
