  1. Dear Norma, Renee, Ashleigh, families and Douglas

    What a privilege to have known such a gentle, lovely, gifted with his gravilleas and grafting, a godly man in Robert. The photo by the way is gorgeous and he is in his element.

    Robert is now free from Parkinsons and it’s debilitating presence in his body. Going home to be with his Lord and Saviour is so much better.

    You are all in my thoughts and prayers as you grieve his parting.

  10. The Brown family were wonderful neighbours of the Western family for many years. We have many happy memories. Robert was a hardworking dairy farmer. He was quiet, humble and a gentle man who always stopped for a cheerful chat. He was a talented nursery man well know for his grevilleas and beautiful gardens. Our deepest, loving sympathy to Norma, Renee, Daniel and their families. We also remember with love, his siblings Margaret, Doug, Barry and Anne (dec).

  14. Condolences to Doug ,Margaret, Barry , Norma & siblings & families. Anyone who met Rob first time never forgotten him . He was a hard worker with minimal effort & his love of the outdoors especially being around natives either growing , grafting or designing gardens for them to grow . His knowledge was incredible & learnt a lot from him . Always has a unique smile on him no matter the circumstances & loved his humour. You will be hugely missed by so many . RIP Rob

  16. My grandpa, a sweet and honourable man who cared a lot about his family. He was always soft spoken and kind to all those he crossed paths with. He never had a bad word leave his mouth about another person and he never seemed to have an ill-word to say about the situation he found myself in. Robert was a true hope and embodiment of a positive and genuine man. Some of my most treasured memories are not one in particular, but when he drove he would take the scenic routes for the travel-sick child I was. He knew how to accommodate to my needs, even before I was old enough to comprehend the weight it would mean to me. May you rest easy, Grandpa. You lived a full and happy life surrounded by your plants and your loved ones.
