  3. News of Graeme’s passing is deeply saddening, and I send my deepest condolences to Margo, Justin and all of Graeme’s grieving brothers, sisters, and extended family.

    He came from one of the most remarkable families I have ever known. Their home life on the farm at Ecklin South was a true creation of their parents Ian and Kath – a family full of kindness, common sense, good humour, wit, integrity and wisdom. Graeme was a spirited part of that life, often hilarious, sometimes mischievous, and genuinely knowledgeable of the reality of farming, the joys of sport (especially cricket), the mysteries of fishing, and above all the ultimate gift of married life with Margo.

    We all wish he could have stayed on earth much longer to further enhance our lives. I am glad I taught him at Terang High School. Now I grieve that the student has gone before the teacher. It should not be that way.

    Farewell Graeme,

  5. To Graeme,

    A down to earth bloke, who called it as he saw it, with the added humour.

    A wonderful sportsman who excelled in cricket “the run machine” and in fishing, “if there where no fish he would get one and everyone else Nil”.

    A teacher who showed me it was my problem to sort my fishing tangles out, how to fish and showed me patience.

    A mate, I hauled 4 sharks up a cliff with, one fine morning.

    An uncle who helped his parents and his sister on the farm for countless decades each weekend and asked for nothing in return.

    An authentic Australian, who lived in a simple way, and showed us that true satisfaction was found with family, living a simple life and doing positive things you enjoyed the most.

    To a person who was more like a brother than an uncle, we are sad for you leaving us so unexpectedly, may you rest forever in peace my friend.

    Our thoughts and support are with Margo, Justin and family at this difficult time.

    Nigel & Jiani and all the girls.
    Lauren, Tara, Darci & Quenci.

  13. One of a kind. A brilliant sportsman, passionate fisherman, more importantly a decent human. Remember those late nights fishing between the apostles, bonfire going, pulling in sharks. Solving all the worlds problems. The best of times.
    A champion bloke.
