  11. A hard working, strong and kind man I am blessed to call my uncle. Your support and love over the years for both mum and I when I was growing up will never be forgotten. You were the original voice of “Gidday Walkie” your cheeky smile always welcomed me. I still can’t work out how you got your tricky teaspoon shot across the table so quick even when I thought I was watching you close. Rest peacefully Uncle Kenny.

    Sending all our love to Aunty Madelena, Maree, Andrea, Janette, Philip and families.
