The Guest Book is expired.

Passed away peacefully on 12 July at Joondalup Hospital after a brave fight surrounded by his beloved family. His sense of humour, concern for others and love of life continued to the very end. Ron was my soul mate and best friend and filled my life with love and memories that will last forever. Rest in God's arms now my love and keep that pillow warm. I can't wait to share it with you in heaven. As you used to say, "Grief is the price we pay for love." All my love, Heather.

Beloved father of Jo, Linley and Lisa and father-in-law of Tom and Richard. We could not have had a better father and role model. Your kindness, gift of time and love, mentoring and devotion to our children has shaped our lives and who we are. We will strive to keep your pattern of giving alive in the world and we will miss you terribly. Rest now, dear Dad, in God's garden where we're sure you are already hard at work.

One of life's true gentlemen! Pop, you spent a lifetime building a life for us that was filled with love, joy and laughter. We were honoured and truly blessed to have had you as our Grandpop. We will miss your infectious smile, endless positivity and unwavering support. Rest in peace, our dearest Pop, knowing you have left our lives and the world, so much brighter. You were truly our hero and the wind beneath our wings. Love from all nine of your number one grandchildren; Ash, Beck, Nick, Maddie, Lara, Annie, Jake, Matt and Chris.
