Well, what can I say pop. You were a battler right until the very end. Im sorry I couldn’t be there with you. It pains me that you never got to meet your great grand daughter Kiara. Im sure you would of loved her and she would of loved you back twice as much. I’ll never forget the good times that we had when I was growing up, when you took me to work with you and you sat me up on a forklift (I think) and I did something silly and you just looked at me, shook your head and called me a dipstick. Or the time I got a mini snooker table and made you get down on your hands and knees and play me, never used to let me win though. I guess that’s where my competitive streak comes from. Thanks for all the memories we’ve shared together. And I hope where you are its bloody warmer than Bendigo haha. I love you pop and ill be sure to crack a few tooheys gold tinnies for you, even after the amount of times I told you that there is better beer out there but you still wanted no bar of that. It was either that beer or nothing.

Ill miss you so much pop, and ill be sure to tell Kiara when she’s grown up about all the memories that I have of you.

Goodbye for now, and im sure we’ll see each other again, one day.

I love you pop

Sending heartfelt love and condolences ???? to Gloria, Rose, Linda, Norm and families. I so wish I could be there with you all to honour and celebrate Bob’s life.

What a beautiful, unique and Iconic man.
So many memories over so many life stages.

One of the many stories I have ,
I hadn’t been to visit for awhile (90’s) and Bob showed up with a copy of Melways and bluntly asked ‘ Have you forgotten where 5 Bosquet Street is? ‘I got my butt around there quick smart’

I had the honor of being called his 3rd daughter.

So pleased I got to spend time with both Bob and Gloria in Bendigo.

Warmed my heart to see Bob looking after Gloria. I Loved watching them together ❤

On one of my visits we went to see Gloria in respite and Bob told anyone who would listen I was his daughter.

I remember as will everyone being made welcome over the years in Bosquet Street, Maidstone and have so many stories we could tell .

I hope you are bloody warm now Bob . Look forward to meeting again one day, have some cheese scones ready please .

You will live on forever in my heart and memories ♥

Big love to Gloria, Rose,Linda,Norm and families. Katrina and David you were both the apple of his eye when you were young …

I love you Bob . I wish I had got to see you one more time.

Love Annette and Nic .
