Date of passing: 03 August, 2022
GRINTER- Clarence Alfred
Passed away peacefully at Northeast Health, Wangaratta.
Dearly loved husband of May for almost 63 years.
Devoted father and father-in-law of Debbie and Ronald, Ian and Robyn.
Adored grandad of Casey and Frazer, Tyson and Annie, Luke and Jordan.
To me you were someone special, someone good and true.
You will never be forgotten,
As I thought the world of you.
No longer in our lives to share,
But in our hearts, you will remain.
A smiling face and a heart of gold,
The best this world could ever hold.
Today – Tomorrow our whole lives through,
I will always love and remember you.
Your ever-loving wife, May
He never looked for praise.
He was never one to boast
He just went on quietly working
For the ones he loved the most.
His dreams were seldom spoken
His wants were very few
And most of the time his worries
Went unspoken too.
He was there… a firm foundation
Through all our storms of life
A sturdy hand to hold on to
In times of stress and strife.
A true friend we could turn to
When times were good or bad
One of our greatest blessings
The man that I called Dad.
Loved father of Debbie and father-in-law of Ronald.
Treasured Grandad to Casey, Tyson and Luke.
Softly within the shadows,
There came a gentle call.
With farewells left unspoken,
You quietly left us all.
Cherished memories of my Dad
Ian (Mooch) and Robyn
Without goodbye, you went to sleep,
But precious thoughts are mine to keep.
A tender thought that brings a tear,
A silent wish that you were here.
Love Casey and Frazer.
You were taken so suddenly,
We couldn’t say goodbye,
Now we have only memories
That will never die.
Rest in Peace
Tyson and Annie.
We never got a goodbye,
Then again you never really die.
We know you’re up above,
Looking down on us with love.
Don’t worry about our pain.
For we know we’ll meet again
I couldn’t say a last farewell or even say goodbye,
For you were gone before we knew and only God knows why.
He potters no more in the garden,
He strolls no more down the path.
The years we shared together
Will forever live on, in my heart.
