Thanks to everyone for coming to Wal’s service and our apologies for not being there. Thanks to the Tuckett families for organising everything this morning. Thanks to the staff of Koorooman House for their love, care, and friendship of Wal. A sincere apology today from Wal’s oldest brother Arthur; with the coronavirus situation we decided it best we all meet at Mum and Dad’s place in Sydney this morning for the service.
We thank God for the life and example of Uncle Wal. His genuine interest in what his nephews and nieces we were all doing and his care for others is inspiring. He was a real gentleman, but leaves great bushy memories like rides on Charlie Brown, cracking yarns, killing snakes by cracking them on the post, BBQs at Buffalo with koalas in the tree right above us (“are we safe standing here?!”), the “food detector” on his car that meant he always turned up right on dinner time, driving all the way up to Sydney and Canberra for our weddings (and us looking out the church door to see if his Ford will get him here… him arriving was the highlight of the wedding for everyone!), that old fridge from Wal and Dad’s farm that lasted so long, and guided tours of the area for our families in later years. His love for the local history and especially Snake Island was legendary; many times we’ve pulled out his poem, read it, and boasted, ‘Bet you didn’t know a Cayzer could write like that!’
Our prayers and sympathies for all his family and friends today,
Adrian and Tory Cayzer, for Mum and Dad (Arthur and Jude) and our families.June 28, 2020
Our deepest sympathy to Wal’s family. We loved his stories and local knowledge of the Cayzer heritage.June 29, 2020
Deepest sympathies to Wal’s family.
I have great memories of chatting with Wal about local Gippsland history and shipwrecks, and later on working with him at Snake Island on the koala program.
His renditions of the ‘The Muster on Snake’ on the verandah at the Cattlemen’s Hut will echo forever and his comment ‘Any day you can swing your legs out of bed and put your feet on the ground is a good day’.
You are saddled on your beloved horse Brandy on the other side now, Bless you Wal you will be greatly missed but never forgotten. Shirley StrachanJune 29, 2020
Deepest sympathy to Wal’s family and his many, many friends. What a warm, energetic, compassionate soul who was open to the world and always smiling. We met by chance in a hostel in Cork, Ireland, nearly forty years ago–and since that day he has left an indelible impression on my life and in my heart. What a light in this world!June 30, 2020
