G, everyone is born but few truly live. You tried to wear many hats within the community but only one truly fitted. We are in disbelief and shock by your sudden passing. Although tragic and sad , we are finding solace in the fact you passed away serving your greatest calling. May you now put your feet up and enjoy a well deserved rest after a lifetime of dedicated service.

Dad, father-in-law, Poppy,mentor and dear friend – Love always Matt, Megan, Rory, Mitchell, April and Fraser.


Our lives were so filled because of your love and kindness. There wasn’t anything you wouldn’t do for us and others and we will treasure the memories forever.Thanks for being the most amazing Dad, father-in-law and friend, but most of all a loving Pop. It’s never goodbye but see you soon. – all our love forever Sally, Brenden, Griffin and Molly.
