  3. RIP Swanny. It’s time to pull the big rig up one last time, grab a seat at the bar and have a beer with those who made it there before you … Popeye, Uncle Errol, Ray, Buddy … we can only imagine some of the stories being told up there right now!

    Rest in Peace Neil
    Maureen and family

  4. Dad. They don’t make them like you anymore. Always helping, with words wisdom, with a ciggie in hand and a beer at the ready.
    Euchre nights. Poker days.
    Always preferring the dirt tracks over the bitumen…especially in a freshly washed vehicle!
    You couldn’t shake the country, no matter how long you lived in the city.
    Thank you for taking my boy under your wing when he needed guidance.
    Love and miss you.

  5. Uncle Swanny you were a great uncle and fun to be around. Whenever we visited you were always there with a hug and a yarn. You were kind and lovable but cheeky old bugger and we will miss you terribly. Much love and sympathy to the Swan and Hayward families, Sharon, Tim and family xx
