  4. Uncle Peter, always with a smile with some cheeky machinations behind it, a people person, he loved to be with family, friends and always willing share a joke and making the implausible, plausible.
    His running gag for all of us was that we were his favourite, “here’s my favourite sister in law Judy, give us a kiss, here’s my favorite nephew, you get the drift. I’ve never know my life without my Uncle Peter and he will be truly missed.
    Our thoughts, prayers and sincere condolences are with Phyllis, Kate, Matthew, Sara and their families.

    “If the wind will not serve, take to the oars”

    Farewell our favourite Uncle.

  5. Fond memories of a great guy and dear friend. We will always remember his call of ” have you got the kettle on mother ” when he called out to the Evans farm. ( Most likely when he should have been working!!!)
    Love to Phyl and all the family

  6. We are saddened and heartbroken to say that our gentle, but strong father/Pa has passed. In true ‘Rooze’ style, it was a beautiful, calm and; peaceful moment when he drew his final breath.

    The level of care he received from Mum at home has been remarkable and a great comfort to my family because we know we wouldn’t have had Dad for as long as we did without her continuous love and dedication to him.

    Rooze/Pa, you were patient, brave, selfless to the end and life without your smile will be a very different one…

    Forever in our hearts. Love you Pa!
