Papa died as he wanted, with his boots on, taking a bull to a sale. He had a hard life, losing his mother during his birth. He worked as a miner, a steel worker, at Vickers, and for years up to his death he owned a salvage yard and a store and station.He also bred and traded prize hunting dogs for many years. He loved his farm and cattle and was very proud that when he died he had a 100 head of cattle. He loved children and his grandchildren were the light and love of his life. They all remember going to the farm with Papa and how much he loved each one of them.
A very special and heartfelt thank you to In Loving Memory, Maggie for sponsoring my Papa's memorial. Its a blessing to all of us in his family. If you have time please repay her great kindness by visiting her memorials.
