  7. We only met u two times. U took Heta and I for a drive in your 4 wheel drive sitting in the back driving around in your farm. Never forget how much of a funny man u were. U cheeky bugger lined up your sprinklers system with your ute and drove us through it, soaking us sitting in the back. We knew that day this is a good old fellow that loves life. ’til we catch up next time in heaven we will be waiting for that ute ride, but this time we will be on to u lol. Love to Sharon & family

  8. Our hearts and thoughts are sad with your passing. Our memories of days gone by are full with happier times. Remembering our holidays at Karadoc, playing guitars around the piano, mustering sheep, riding motor bikes, building cubby houses out of saltbush, exploring the sand dunes, rabbit shooting, family BBQ’s with all the cousins, catching yabbies and crossing the flooded creek. Watching you race at the speedway and of course that eternal weakness for anything fast and mechanical. Forever in our hearts. And our thoughts an prayers to our Johns family.

  15. Memories of yesteryear!! Family holidays at Karodoc homestead, us Melbourne kids finding a new kinda freedom. Remembering antics of older cousin Greg, building cubies on the other side of the bong, scary bike rides on the claypan. How cool to have your 21st in the shearing shed I must of been ten then. Motor bike riding was very much his passion watching him race at the track or enduro riding at Karodoc. All I wanted to do was jump on your water bed I was just a kid. Not forgetting Christmas and all the years of leaky tinny river crossings, all the ribbings you would give your young Melbournian cousin. Memories are forever..
    Heartfelt condolences to my beautiful Uncle Darb, Dianne, Amy ,Lambert girls and cousins…

  17. Johnsy, Greggles, Greg – a man of many colours and depths. A sense of humor and wickedness like no other. A love of life, your treasured farm, and family. I treasure the years working together, our mateship, drinks and dancing – a very odd couple on the dance floor :) A courageous battle you should never have had to endure, taken too soon but never forgotten. Lotsa love goes with you until we meet up again. My love and thoughts are with you Sharon, Amy and extended family – Greg always spoke of you with love and pride. RIP, mate xx

  25. Dear Greg, the fondest memories of my childhood was going to dinner out the farm with you, mum, Amy, Mr and Mrs John’s, Diane, Louise and the family. Having a beautiful spread of amazing food and gathering together. Christmas with you all was the best of all. Especially when the family began to grow with the grand children. I miss you all and especially the hedgehog and lemon slice. Nothing will beat the Mrs John’s slices! This sad occasion has made me reflect and I realise how lucky I was too be part of such an amazing family. Thank you to all and condolences to you all xxx
