    Dear Dad, you fought to the end, finally resting peacefully. What a great innings, 95! One of the cricketing greats of the Albury area. You lived all but the last months of your life, living on the family farm on the Island Bonegilla. Life wasn’t the same for you after you lost the love of your life and the strength at your back, your dearest wife, Doris. Reunited in heaven, after 17 plus years apart. You loved all of your family and we loved you. You will be sadly missed.
    For you, Dad, my heart aches. Love always, your youngest daughter, Kathryn.
    Love and many cherished memories held by your son-in-law: Mike, friend: Ian, grandchildren: Greg and Racquel, Kristina and Rob, Matt and Lynda, Peter and Christine, and great grandchildren: Emma, Jake, Zoe, Jonathon, Sophie, James, Lockie and Jack.
    Forever in our hearts.
