Best friend and husband to Susan.

Loving Dad to Robert (dec.), Laurinda and Melanie, father-in-law to Dean.

Fun loving Grandad to Emily, Hayden and Alex

Master to Bonnie.

We love you



I often lay awake at night,

While others are asleep.

No one knows my sorrow,

No one hears me weep.

There are many times I need you,

And many times I cry.

If my love could have saved you,

You would never have had to die.

That something special that we shared,

Is now my greatest treasure.

The special love you gave to me,

Is in my heart forever.

I never said goodbye to you,

And I never will.

For I know in my heart,

That you are with me still.

-Your soulmate Susan.


So suddenly you had to pass,

You closed your eyes and broke our hearts.

Behind life’s smiles we shed a tear,

For a Dad we lost and loved so dear.

Our hearts ache as we whisper low,

We love you Dad and miss you so.

Until we meet again.

-Love Laurinda and Melanie


We will miss playing fun and games with you Grandad.

          -Love Emily, Hayden and Alex.


Beloved son to James and Betty (dec.).

Loved brother and brother-in-law to Carolyn and George Davidson, Robert (dec.), Peter and Merrin, Geraldine and Michael Hooper, Kaylene, Helen, Suzanne and David Beasley, Gerard and Megan and all their families.
