Your support, advice (often given sometimes taken),
patience, kindness and everything about you will be deeply missed.
Our world has been turned upside down with an emptiness that will never be filled.
Thankyou dad for a lifetime of memories we will keep and cherish in our hearts.
All our love Julie and Lynn
Grandad you have left a void I didn’t know I would ever have,
you were always there for me and I’ll never forget the lessons learnt in life and in golf,
the holidays and all of the simple things that we sometimes take for granted.
Our family will cherish the small things forever.
See you soon,
Corey, Louisa, Archie, Ivy and Leo
Grandad, our hearts are broken.
I didn't want to have to say goodbye. Thank you for a lifetime of memories,
all that you taught us and sharing your endless wisdom.
Love you forever Denika, Daniel, Beau and Zak
Loved and adored father of Vicki, loved grandfather of Zena and Machial,
loved grandfather in-law of Ainslea and loved great grandfather of Jordan and Noah.
Dad, where do I start and how do I encapsulate everything you are and meant to me?
My rock, mentor, confidante, hero and calm in the storms of life.
I never heard you with a raised voice or angry word. Your support unwavering.
From horses to horsepower we shared so much throughout our lives.
You were there when I came into this world and I am grateful I was with you as you left.
My heart is broken but my memories are strong. Vicki
Grandad - you always knew when something wasn't right, and exactly what to say.
I'll always remember our road trips with you forever telling me to "drop the gear here love",
"just hug that corner a bit more", and the best one "you can go a bit quicker round here love".
You did life at 100 miles an hour and I loved every minute I shared with you.
As you said to me.... "if I never met you, I wouldn't like you. If I didn't like you, I wouldn't love you.
If I didn't love you, I wouldn't miss you. But I did, I do, and I will" Zena
Whether it was teaching me how to ride my first motorbike,
shooting my first gun or teaching me the art of steering as a 9 year old boy,
you were luckily the father figure I was fortunate enough to have.
You helped guide me along throughout some very important years
of my life and I know I wouldn't be the man I am today without all of
your guidance, help and support. Thank you for being you.
Until we meet again,
ALL THE BEST! CHEERIO.
Legends race on...
Frank, what a privilege it has been.
Your genuine love and acceptance of me as a part of your family was next to none and that I will be forever grateful for.
My memories will be cherished, you will be greatly missed.
Thank you for all of the good times we had I love you and wish you were still here with us.
Miss and love you lots.
I love laughing and having jokes with you.
Love you Grandad - Love Noah
