RIP to a very special man in our lives… Papa Tanner. Reunited with your beloved wife Joan.
You are already so sorely missed. Your legacy lives on in your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. I feel so incredibly lucky to have known you in your final years. We never tired of listening to you talk about your life, you had a way of telling your memories that made us feel like we had been there with you. You taught me the word ‘colossal’ which ironically is the word best to describe yourself, a truely great man. Our children will always know your name & we’ll forever cherish our memories of you. We love you immensely.
Vale Papa 💙🌹
We remember Kevin fondly; his sense of humour, his big heart and his farming stories. One of the occasions was his visit to Tasmania with Joy some years ago. He deeply cared for his family and friends.May 30, 2021
