Death Notice

BUTTERWORTH - Michael Shaune (Mick)

1 July 1943 - 25 May 2022

Taken away far too soon. A loyal, loving, and special husband for 54 glorious years. An inspirational son, father, brother, son-in-law, brother-in-law, father-in-law, uncle and Pa. Friend to all he met or passed along the road.

“Life has to end, love doesn’t”

I shall miss him every single day and forever more.

Love your wife, Adrienne

Our hearts are broken, and we can't believe you are gone.  Our lives have a great big hole in them now, which we simply don't know how to fill.  You meant the world to us, and we all loved you so much.  We are so lucky to have had you as our wonderful Dad and Pa and we will miss you everyday.
Cath, Justin, Maya and Meg


Dad, I hope you know how much of you there is in everything I do.
It can be the smallest thing....trivial.....mundane or something much bigger but you are always there, under the surface of it somewhere.
I will carry you with me in my heart always... everywhere I go.

Loved father of John, loved grandfather of Eliza, Saige and Inica. Your wisdom, knowledge and support were unwavering and now sorely missed.

Rest In Peace Dad

Love John

The most precious father, father-in-law and Pa taken unexpectedly and far sooner than we were prepared for. We feel wounded by your loss and know of all the lessons in life we are to learn, this will always be the hardest, the one where we have to learn to say goodbye. We will hold on to every memory we created together and as we walk the gentle hills of Tetoora Road your spirit will ride the breeze alongside us, and we will feel you… always. Three little boys have lost their rockstar Pa, their free range grandparent, their great teacher, the creator of all the best adventures and we have lost a mentor, confidante, story teller and all the wisdom we ever needed.

The most unique of men, forever in our hearts.

Love Laura, Hayden, Ned, Jobe and Chad
