  1. What a wonderful man who had so much to be proud of. Quiet, caring, sensible and humble – but it was his cheeky wit and love of telling a good yarn I will cherish forever. You showed us simplicity, kindness and faith can lead to a wonderfully full and enduring life. You’re also evidence that a beer on a Friday is the secret to a long life and life well lived! Miss you grandad, love Emma xx

  5. I feel so privileged to be your grandson.
    I think everyone close to you feels like this too.
    You had a wonderful warm way of making those in your company feel protected, valued and worthy.
    I miss sitting with you in your armchair telling stories about Cobbledicks and The Lakes. I miss watching you in your beloved garage tinkering with old mini mokes and the comforting smell of your garage, but I will never forget these memories or your generous cheeky smile. Goodbye beautiful man,
    Love Matt, Megan, Lily, Jack,Paddy and Charlie

  13. I could always count on you Grandad for valuable advice, support and guidance about anything and everything. Hard to think that we won’t hear “Ahh, hello Josh, hello Tonnie” anymore and that you won’t be just a phonecall away. You will be with Granmum now and we’re sure that you both are smiling. We treasure our special memories and love you heaps. Wish we could be there at your service to say our goodbyes.
