One hell of a man, and one of the friendliest faces to come by. Thank you for blessing me in so many childhood memories at any of our family gatherings or just while simply at Aunty Trish's house for quiet nights in all together as you were more then "extended family" growing up. Ever more love and care towards Sue and the now men that was your foundation for an amazing life. Fly high and see your smiling face again one day while rolling your eyes when a deck of cards come out for a game of twos. jess nix, kids and rest of the family x
