ROWE SYDNEY DAVID (SYD) Passed away on May 6th, 2020 at the age of 90 years.
A life so very well lived. A high achiever, a generous person with a great sense of humour. His final days were a testament to his strength and resilience as he had shown throughout his life. Syd was a beloved husband and best friend of 67 years to Coralie, a proud father of David, Michelle and Darryl, and father-in-law to Jenny, Tony and Theresa. He was adored by his grandchildren Trenna, Tyson, Kane, Carly, Cassie, Sam and Sarah and he loved being a great grand Pop to Amelia, Lucia, Tessa, Eliza and Tommy. His words of wisdom, his genuine interest in us all, his warmth and kindness will never be forgotten and his memory will live on in a family he created. He touched the lives of so many and will live in our hearts forever.
Due to COVID-19 a private funeral service will be held.
A memorial service will be held for Syd at a later date.
