So many memories from the first time we met at Traralgon Tech back in 1972 after you’d moved down from Vinifera. Becoming friends at school, playing footy against and eventually together with, drinking, you doing burns outs in your old HQ and heaps of other great times I have never forgotten and never will till it’s my time to go.December 20, 2020
Boppa from an old mate who shared treasured times from many moons ago you will be missed i;m sure rest in peace Buddy.

Just a few weeks ago we were chatting for an hour about the usual cricket and family mate. You never ever left me in any doubt about your love of cricket, but your love of Poss, Party and Erin shone through more than anything else. Hard to believe. Nothing but the greatest of memories.December 21, 2020
Deepest sympathies Poss, Party, Erin and families.
Boppa McLean,December 21, 2020
Some of the “old boys” in their previous tributes have expressed their gratitude of what you meant to us in those teenage days and I wish to add to their comments.There was indeed the color TV,the back shed pool room and the music (Ian Hunter & Paul McCartney & Wings to name a couple).You had the best Skateboard and many of us spent the evenings skateboarding down near the Swimming Pool.You played Cricket then for bloody Centrals and Football for bloody Southside however our friendship prevailed because you were a fantastic fellow and we were friends forever because of those early days and that is what mattered throughout our lives even though our lives went in somewhat different directions.Christine was also there in these early days and it goes to prove what an enduring bond you two had forever.Whenever our paths crossed post teenage days it was like yesterday “G’day Boppa” “G’day Roy” and we were always friends because we go back.Old friends for life.Those early days were priceless!
RIP “Boppa” McLean
Pete, Always with that great big smileDecember 22, 2020

Chris, Matt, Erin and families
Aunty Betty and Jo
Always, Love and childhood memories

Oh Pete big Dunc in Perth just called me such sad news. You will be greatly missed by many Sue and myself included, we just talked about the most amazing and great times we had attending and participating in roller hockey matches, street drags in Dandenong, (you were always chasing the elusive 10 second quarter mile in that HG)))) boxing nights across the Melbourne suburbs and that flat in Davidson Streeet haha located just 2 doors from Christine’s parents too! Such great times and laughs. Mate legends are remembered you certainly will be too! RIP……… Rob Stevens (tonna)December 22, 2020
Still can’t quite believe it Pie, it was just a couple of weeks ago we were designing the perfect rear centre console fishing boat!
I’ll miss our top end fishing chats and treasure the memories from the trips we actually managed to do.
A massive loss for the McLean crew, you will be sadly missed
Big hugs to the family,, wish I was there xxDecember 22, 2020

We have so many funny memories over the years we have known you. You were always so kind and generous. A true gentleman & genuine top bloke, who simply loved his family more than anything else. You will be sadly missed but never forgotten. Sending all our love to Poss, Matt & Ezzy

It is a pleasure to have known such a lovely, gentle and caring person. You were a genuine guy who oozed love for Poss, Matt and Erin – this was evident all the time!
Rest in peace mate.
Heaps of love and big hugs to Poss, Matt, Erin and Jo.

Condolences to the McLean family. May your sorrow be softened by warm memories of Pete.December 23, 2020
A huge loss to our lives, the world won’t be the same without you shining in it. A generous and loving friend who always made people feel welcome and loved. Too many memories to list stretching back forever. We always knew our Chrissy was well loved and protected in your care. Can’t imagine Hotel California without you.December 23, 2020
Rest easy Petie,
