As I walk through my grief I thank you for all your support and kindness... I appreciate it very much
I thought I would share a pic and a couple of paragraphs from his eulogy.... his will be sorely missed

Forever Remembered in Our Hearts
Family has always been so important to Bill and as a father he was always involved in his children’s lives. He and Nancy always supported, loved and cherished the family relationships with their children, partners and grandchildren. A gruff exterior belied a soft and caring heart, he worried about his family, and he offered support in so many ways and wanted to be involved to the very last.
Having his family so widespread meant cherished visits to and from New Zealand with Glenn, Heather, Morgan, Riley, Kate, Jack and Zoe, holidays in Queensland with Sonya and Ross and many weekends and special occasions celebrated in Canberra with Carol, Phil, Jessica and Mathew.
Nancy has been the love of his life for over 55 years; they depended on each other for companionship, adventures and in later life supported each other through the challenges of aging. They shared a special bond and were each others soul mate and best friend. Through the journey of life they have always been there for each other and their love will last forever.
Go softly Dad
