Richards - Robert John ‘Bob’ of Tongio,
Passed away peacefully on the 24th December 2019, aged 91.
Loved husband of Evelyn (dec.). Loving father of Ian (dec.), Barry, Robbie (dec.),
John (dec.), Jeffrey, Meredith (dec.), Peter and Leanne.
Adored Pa, Papa and Old Pa to his grandchildren and great grandchildren. Brother
of Leonard (dec.) and Laurie.
There isn't enough words to describe how much you meant to me. I was privileged
to have you in my life for 31 years. A special bond between a Pa and his
granddaughter that could never be broken. A wonderful Old Pa to my children.
Our life is not the same without you, we miss you so much - Hannah (‘Our Han’),
Jamie, Izabelle, Alivia and Jed.
The grief and heartache we feel bears witness to the depth of our love. You never
failed to do your best. Your heart was true and tender. You simply lived for those
you loved and those you loved remember. Life is not measured by the years you
live, but the love you gave and the things you did. Sadly missed - Pilso and Julie.
A fathers touch, a dad’s kiss. A grieving daughter, the dad I will always miss. An
empty house, an empty chair, an empty bikkie tin, a father’s love no longer there.
A broken heart, tear filled eyes, the times we shared, the laughs we had. Things I
miss when I think of my dad - Love Dodge.
Remembering you is easy we do it every day. Missing you is the heartache that
never goes away. Nothing will be the same without you perched up in the Mud Hut
directing all - Jeff and Ann, Pearly your little girlie and Jessie Jessup.
Much loved Pa and Old Pa to Brendan, Kellie, Mackenzie, Theodore, Belle and
Maxwell. Although are hearts are broken, we are forever thankful that you were in
our lives, your quirky sense of humour and classic frown lives on through
generations. At rest with your beautiful Evelyn, we will miss you.
Bob / Pa
I will forever miss your stories, your wit and your eye rolls. Sleep peacefully my
friend - Love Heather.
