We will miss you, our chats and your sense of humour that often caught us off guard but always made us laugh. We will also miss singing Happy Birthday to your disgruntled response each year!

Love always,
Maree and the Pilling boys.

Dear Ric,
Thank you for your friendship and generosity over the years. I will always
remember the great gatherings on your back veranda .They certainly were
good old days.Greg and I used to have great times.
I send my condolences to your family
from Barry.

By any measure 32,353 days is a good run, and one you executed in absolute style.

Thanks for all the great memories, humour, intelligence and for simply being yourself.

Though if I’m being totally honest, that morning (many years ago) when I walked out of the house to find you in the back yard in all your glory (smoke in hand) defiantly was one of my top 10 memories I could maybe have done without.

Farewell Uncle Rick.

Well done Rick.
Life had it’s ups and down’s.
But you have left a legacy of two children (one deceased), five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
I will miss your telephone calls and witty sarcasm.
All my love Lorraine Dosualdo

An exuberant raconteur, never lost for words. Many an amusing exaggerated tales. A never ending source of entertaining nonsense to our family, plus a knowledgeable source of our family history. Never to be forgotten

So many fun antics and memories. So much laughter, the pranks, so much history just gone. My favourite memory/keepsake is this photo of you me and Jeff posing for a picture to have embedded on a plate to give to Beatrice. What a hoot! I still have it on display. I will miss your wit and sometimes snide remarks and your funny laugh. RIP my friend. You will be missed. Love you always. Annie

A brother and a good mate.
A great wit and a law unto himself.
We will miss you. Rest in peace.

A twinkle in the eye and a mischievous grin, quick of wit and full of life.
An untameable force of nature who will forever be in our hearts, farewell Uncle Rick.
