In peace and honour rest you here, my sons; Rome's readiest champions, repose you here in rest, Secure from worldly chances and mishaps! Here lurks no treason, here no envy swells, Here grow no damned grudges; here are no storms, No noise, but silence and eternal sleep: In peace and honour rest you here, my sons! William Shakespeare, Titus Andronicus

George, Life may have led us down different paths and the years since lost; but I’ll always have fond memories of our high school years getting up to mischief around East Geelong. Adventures from the backyard to Nawaka and Labasa including a cheeky Hurricane for good measure. One of the Good Lord’s best taken too soon, Rest In Peace old mate. Deepest sympathies to Wendy, Andrew and all who hold you dear. Richard Barwise

Gone too soon George. Thanks for being part of my journey at one stage in life where we worked together at the then NLTB. You epitomised the life of a kind hearted gentleman who has time for everyone no matter what the IT problem was and thanks for the mateship. Rest well my brother and tauvu.
