Fly high above your beloved creeks and gullies sweetheart.

LAIDLAW - Alan Maxwell

Cousin to half of Tanjil South, 'Dad' to me. Amongst the family you were the quiet one, except for cussing the cows, your arguing kids, and the dog. No wonder you loved the quiet times finding treasures up the bush and in the creeks. We never got to say all of those meaningful words at the end, but we understood each other anyway. We'll miss those long chats on the phone and your quiet wisdom. 'Life's not fair, get over it.' certainly applies now.

Dear Grandpa, Thank you for everything you've taught me, and all the things you've shown me. You Rock.

Memories are made to last forever.

Love Brenda, Mick and Max.


LAIDLAW – Alan Maxwell

Dear Grandpa,

We hope you are somewhere with your shovel and gold pan having a great time. We are going to miss you, your stories about the rocks you've collected, your funny sense of humour and our gold panning and exploring adventures.

Lots of love, Scott, Renee, Emily and Kaitlyn xxoo


LAIDLAW – Alan Maxwell

I’m so glad Mikayla and I could give you one last hug and you were able to meet little Archie. You were the best dad and grandpa we could have ever asked for. We love you so much and will miss you more than you’ll ever know.

Love Claire, Mike, Mikayla and Archie xx


LAIDLAW – Alan Maxwell

Much loved and respected brother of Brian and sister-in-law Jean, much loved uncle of Stephen, Cheryl, Heather and Tanya and families.
