It broke my heart to lose you, but you didn’t go alone,
as part of me went with you, wherever you may roam.

Til we meet again darling.

Rhonda xx



You were a wonderful father, father-in-law to Mick,
adored grandad to Matthew and Elisha, Steven and Airli and loved great grandad to Drake.

Dad, you never failed to tell us how much you loved us and how proud you were. We will always cherish our memories.

Love you too Dad, Susan xx


Dear Dad,

You fought till the end. You bounced back so many times I just thought this would be another.

Thank you for the memories growing up.

Thank you for helping myself and Ruth as we began our journey.

Thank you for caring for our children always.

We will always love you.

Forever doting on his grandchildren, he’ll be fondly remembered as the man who made the best vegemite toast and cups of chocolate milk.

The first car at school pick-ups, sat on his kitchen chair, pottering about the garden and always in his navy-blue penguin polo shirt.

Loved and cherished by his son David, daughter-in-law Ruth and their six children Beth, Joel, Patrick, Thomas, Megan, and Liam xx



Although your body was frail and tired, your love for your family and positive outlook on life never wavered.

You were such an inspiration to all of us.

We have so many wonderful memories of our time spent with you, especially the family fishing trips filled with so much fun and laughter.

Thank you for always being there for us.

Love you - Kerry, Trevor, Casey, Travis, Jacqui, Kris, Lauren, Joel, Jock, Charlie, Austin, Mila and Archie (deceased) xx
