Date of passing: 24 February, 2022
DRAPER, David John
19/2/1934 – 24/2/2022
88 years young.
A true gentleman who gave his all to still be here has lost his fight.
A man born “in the wrong era” left behind a legacy of love and inspired so many.
Forever respected. An artist, a music man, and a man that loved teaching.
A husband to Susie, a father of Trevor & Kerry, and Tim, stepdad to Allan & Kathy, Wayne & Michelle, Margot & Steve (rip), Rob & Colleen, Graham & Janiene.
Grandad and PA to many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Rest easy Pa, enjoy painting the skies and your perfect cups of tea.
David, forever loved and missed – Susie xxx
You were not only my stepdad of 47 years, but my friend.
I want you back, I’ve got plenty of cucumbers and I need help on your computer.
I miss our chats. Love you to bits. Hope Stevie is not leading you astray,
hope Kitzy is getting those Pa cuddles.
Your sign in the shed read.
“The impossible I can do straight away,
But miracles take a bit longer.”
I’m so sorry we couldn’t fix the impossible.
Love you forever – Margot.
You are MY sunshine.
Forever in my heart.
Thank you for all the fun over the last 21 years. – Breanna
