A special thank you to the Doctors, Nurses and Staff at the Symonds Wing of the Jamestown Hospital for their care and compassion.

To my loving Husband and Soulmate of 66 years. My heart still aches with sadness, the secret tears still flow, what it meant to lose you, no one will ever know. Your resting place I will visit and your flowers I place with care, nobody knows the heartache as I turn and leave you there. I will miss you forever, Love Velda and Trixy.

Dearly loved father of Kevin & Maryanne Grandpa of Jo, Sue, Emma & Kimmy Great-Grandpa of Jett, Kaidyn, Jack & Tyreece. Cherished memories of working side by side in the shearing sheds, where I would fondly hear your call of “SheepO”. Rest In Peace. I will miss our regular stout nights. I love you Dad. You’ll be forever missed xx.

Great memories, coming down every Christmas, spending time with you and getting up in the morning to help you milk the goats. You will be greatly missed. Ben, Kat and Kids.

Dad, you have been here so long with us I cannot imagine you gone, I will miss you in life but you are forever in my heart. RIP Pop. Milton, Gaye and family.

Dad, well as father of 12, I guess you could say you had a fulfilled life. You taught us the rights and wrongs of life. I remember when we used to go on holidays to Fisherman’s Bay and you would wear your handkerchief tied in knots as a hat, that is just one of your funny traits. We will miss your Cheshire Cat smile, Forever in our hearts. Ellen, Gary and Dane.

Dad, you have always been inspirational throughout our upbringing from childhood and that gave us the discipline in life to become the adults we are. We have special memories of the years you spent helping us on the farm at Beckwith, in which we will dearly miss and be forever grateful. RIP Dad & Grandpa, Miss you. Velda, Philip, Aaron (dec’d), Tim and Zara.

You had a smile for everyone, you had a heart of gold, you left behind the memories that we will always hold. Judy and Families. You were a man so humble, yet you certainly left an incredible mark on this earth. I am the man I am because of you, you showed me the true essence of what a simple man needs. You are my Dad and what a mighty fine job you did. My Love always, Jack.

The man we had the privilege of calling Dad and Grandpa. Your love, support and guidance over many years have shaped us into the people we are today, Forever in our hearts. Sadly missed. RIP Dad and all our Love. Darryl “Porky” and Lorraine. Grandpa to Amy and Paul, Corey and Caity. Great Grandpa to Cam and Will.

The memories we have are priceless, the time we spent was precious. You will always be in our hearts and memories and we know that you will look after us. You. were that person we looked up to every day who will be sadly missed. Liz, Dave, Teegan, Carly & Caleb.

We’ll always remember your cheeky grin, your caring heart and your determination for life. You were always there for us, through good times and bad. The love we have for you will remain for eternity. Deeply missed by us all; Yvonne, Hamana, Ella & Jayden.
