Loved Husband of Nancy

The gates of memory never close


Loved father of Tricia, friend to Tim, Bob to Jack, Amy and Ella

Hard to believe you won’t be either in your favourite chair, in your little man cave or on your thrice daily trip to Bunnings.

You loved your family, Collingwood and a debate, the latter for which someone always unwittingly obliged.

You provided us with love, laughter, a value system we are truly grateful for and a constant source of entertainment.

Very much loved and will be greatly missed.


Loved father of Jeffrey and Kim, Bob to Darcy, Grace and Eve

A laugh, a smile, a joke or two, that’s the way we will remember you


Dearly loved father of Darren and Bec

Happy memories of a wonderful life

Gone Fishing


Loved brother of Glen

Sorry I never got to say goodbye in person

Love ya


Loved brother of Sharon and Gerard

Loved uncle of Ricky and family, Jackie, Darren and family

The song may have ended but the melody lingers on


Loved brother-in-law to Del, friend of John, uncle to Anthony and Michael and families.

A kind and generous person

Gone but not forgotten
