Leon Joseph GARNER

On July 9, 2021, of Mepunga East.

Dearly loved husband of Jenny.

Loved and cherished father of Hannah.

Aged 71 years

Leon was a great man who influenced countless lives.

Without him the road will be tough for many of us.

He was our rock, the glue that kept us together.

Our hearts are shattered that you have left us.

He gave us so much and expected so little.

All our love Jenny and Hannah

See you on the other side

  24. Leon, loving and generous to our children when they were young. (Season family pool tickets, Warrnambool Showtime and Beach Carnival included many more rides over the years due to your generosity, big heart and thoughtfulness.)
    You hated school and your dream was to leave, get a guitar, a dog and walk to Melbourne.
    Loving and grateful memories.
    Dream on.
