  10. How very sad we were to read of Leo’s passing, our hearts go out to you Eileen and your family at this most difficult time.
    We have happy memories of catching up with you and Leo at different times and locations throughout our lives, early married life with our growing families at Ellerslie and most lately at Hervey Bay where Leo had us in stitches as he recounted life as a Mobile Doggy Groomer.
    From going spotlighting on the back of a Ute, to woodshed yarns and smoke- os, family times, and funny times we thank you Leo.
    Leo was also kind and caring, he showed this with a special visit to me following surgery that saw me struggling to rehabilitate.
    Know that our thoughts, prayers and love are with you all as you bid farewell to one of nature’s true ‘gentle-men’.
    Peter and Margaret Wearne and family 💐
