Graham John Howard

(Box Head, Grumpy, Cock)

Very much loved husband of Heather. Thank you for our years together and our journeys through life. Thanks to the extra special palliative care nurses and Dr A. Fernando. Much loved father of Sharon, Andrew, Mandy and John. Former spouse of Isabel. Loved step father of Raylee, Leeann, Annette and Murray.


Much loved dad and pop of Sharon and Grant, Hannah and Brady, Taylor and Marney, Maddison and Nigel. “Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near. Still loved, still missed and very dear.” You will be forever in our hearts and missed more than words can say.


It was very hard to say goodbye Dad, but now we know you’re pain free and at peace. Drive your tractors freely, mate. Forever in our hearts. Love Andrew, Lynelle, Josh, Mikaela and Chloe


Dearly loved father and father-in-law of Mandy and Dave. Adored granddad (Poppy) of Jorja and Kaitlyn. Sleep peacefully Dad. You will always be forever in our hearts. Reunited with Nan and Pop xxx


Much loved and cherished father of John, father-in-law of Bec and Poppy Graham to Ella, Abbie and Charlotte. Dad, you fought so hard right to the end. You have always been stubborn and did things your own way. I wish we had more time but you are free from pain now. Rest peacefully back in Nan and Pop’s arms. Give them a hug from me. Love your son, John.

“Forever loved and dearly missed”
