  33. Kingy, mate where do I start !
    Thanks for being my mentor, teaching me my trade, setting high standards for a young fella to follow.
    Your effort and time spent with me at work and after hours has helped shaped me into the person I am today.
    I only hope you had some enjoyment in latter years looking at what you help shape and nurture.
    Thank you for your support that you gave me on our visits to ICU in Melbourne with Bronte.
    Gone but not forgotten, taken way to early.
    As they say in the Northern Territory, a true fella!!!
    Condolences to Leanne, Michael and Olivia.
    One last thing Kingy, go the mighty Holdens!!!
    RIP old mate

  39. kingy, mate where do i start,

    A bloke could not have had a better role model and trades man to have completed my trade under.
    You have shaped and mentored my life from a early stage and made me the person and trades man i am today.
    The support you and Leanne gave to me on my time in Melbourne ICU with Bronte i can never repay.
    In the Northern Territory we have a saying, he’s a true fella!!!! Kingy was this and more.
    Condolences to Leanne, Michael and Olivia
