Peacefully on Sunday, February 4, 2018, at Summerset at Wigram Retirement Village. Aged 81 years. Dearly loved husband of Kay for 56 years, loved and respected father and father-in-law of Lisa and Andrew McWilliam, Tony and Yolanda, Nicola and Tony Hickland and Vanessa and Hayden Kroon, and loved grandad of Ashleigh, Casey, and Angus; Georgia, and Jessica; Grace, and Ben; and Lily.
I tried so hard to keep you with me, But had to let you go. I tried to hide the pain inside me, With a smile so that you wouldn’t know. Thank you, sweetheart, for the years together The truly happy times we shared. For your love and all that you did for me And the way that you always cared. Rest peacefully, I will always love you. Forever Kay
