ANZAC DAY Always Remember


We Must Never Forget the brave service Men, Women and Animals

Who have and served and are still serving to defended our freedom

Always in our hearts rest in peace dear ones.

Remember it is our brave service Men and Women who have given us

our democracy and free press.  NOT the politicians.

They just argue like children over what they should have done

HARDING Robert Blair

Robert passed away peacefully at his Newmarket home on Wednesday 17th April 2019. At the time of his passing Robert was just 68 years of age.

Robert leaves behind his wife Susan and loving children Andrew, Fiona, Matthew, Jake and their partners

Robert was a fiercely intelligent man, who carried kindness, enthusiasm and optimism, through all his dealings and relationships. His faith in God sustained him in his life’s journey, and gave him the opportunity to reflect in recent years, upon the incredible life he had lead. He fought always for justice and fairness, and was unfailingly generous with his

time, heart and wisdom. The world is a poorer place for his passing, but he would encourage us all to seek the joy in every moment, just as he always did.

Robert’s family and friends are invited to attend his celebration of life service that will be held in the Crematorium Chapel of the Centenary Memorial Gardens 353 Wacol Station Road Sumner of Tuesday 30/04/19 commencing at 11am. At the completion of the service those in attendance are invited to follow the hearse to Robert’s final resting place in the Cemetery of the Centenary Memorial Gardens.
