  1. My deepest sympathies go out to Bryan’s friends and family.
    When we last met, he told me he didn’t think he was long for this world, I simply did not believe him because I could not imagine Bryan not being around! I will miss his warm personality, gardening advice and moral support. The world was all the better for Bryan being in it.

  2. Bryan, while we only met a few times a month over the last ten years at Melbpc computer club, your broad smile, vigorous hand shake and bright eyes will be long remembered. Now it appears that we may have met in the 50’s given that we were both pupils at St Josephs, Fitzroy at that time.

    You will be missed at EAST and Beast groups of MelbPC.

    To your wife and family my deepest condolences.

  3. Wishing Bryans family my condolences. Thinking of you all.
    Bryan, I never got the chance to meet you but all I heard was how much of a loving, caring and spontaneous person you were. I think we would have made a great friendship with our whitty sense of humor. A lovely service and great memories were told of you Bryan. May you enjoy your “freedom”. xxx

  4. Always cheerful, always smiling, always kind and always, always helpful. Bryan was an amazing member of the Bromeliad Society and we’ll really miss him. Enormous hug to Bev.
    Keely & Rob, bromeliad friends

  5. Thank you for always being a great friend to our family with your kind and generous spirit.

    I will always remember all the good times we shared with each other over the past 13 years.

    My condolences to Bev and the family.

    Rest in peace

  6. Bryan was for many years, a great assistant leader to me for the BEAST section of MelbPC User Group – he will be missed. As well, he was a regular contributor to the EAST subgroup. Our condolences to Bev and family.

  7. Lovely service. Condolences to Bev and family. Fond memories of our school days, cricket and footy. Will miss our irregular lunches with Terry Dearsley.

  8. Bryan was a wonderful friend to our family. I still remember the day Bryan said hello. He truly was the friendliest and most caring neighbour you could ask for. He will be dearly missed.
    Our deepest condolences. Thinking about Bev during this time.
    Love from Fay and Aaron Wong.

  9. Bryan came into our lives as Neighbour when we moved from the country to Annandale Crescent, but over those six years we lived there he became an integral part of our lives. A friend, a confidant, a Handy man, tech advisor, gardener, driver and an all round larrakin.

    I am so grateful to of known Bryan, his kindness, his humour, and character is something to be admired. Vale, Bryan – Rest in peace.

  10. Bryan is a lovely man and we enjoyed his friendship at the Blackburn South Probus Club. We send our love and condolences at this challenging time to his family. Cath and Mike Wite

  11. We will miss hearing Bryan tending to the garden- he’d always come around to say hello and shake us out of our zone when we were consumed by routine. He was always there to help and give a hand or advise with things around the house. We will miss the yummy short-bread he’d bring around when he baked. What an amazing person and from the service we realise what an amazing life. We will miss you Bryan.

    Sending lots of love to Bev and the family…

  12. Our deepest sympathy Bev to you and your family. Bryan courageously fought a long battle, it was with great sadness we heard of his passing.

  13. As another of the kwikform family ,will miss his quick mind and stirring personality. He was always a giver not a taker and no doubt he will be missed by many. Despite moving to Queensland many years ago we have remained in touch and enjoyed many a story together. Will miss him always.
    My deepest sympathy to Bev and the family.

  14. We will miss you Bryan. We loved your sense of humour and kindness you always showered on us. We treasure all the wonderful memories that we have of you. All the gardening and baking advice will be put to good use. Our thoughts and prayers are with Bev, Sonja and all the family. Rest in peace Bryan.

  15. Bryan was our dear friend for many years. We met in the Bromeliad Society & shared a passion for plants.
    We will treasure the forget -me -not plant & Just Joey rose that he gave us & be reminded of him every year when they flower.
    You will be sadly missed.
    Cathy & Peter

  16. I am so glad that Bryan dropped around a few weeks ago in between lock-downs. He was as cheerful as always. He will be greatly missed by members of all the plant groups that he belonged to. He was a friendly face wherever I met him. I will always have a beautiful yellow Clivia that my mother bought from Bryan many years ago. It will now remind me of Bryan.

  17. Thank you for all your support and help Bryan. You will be missed by everyone and we send heartfelt condolences to the family.

  18. Bryan , we were so lucky to know you and so grateful you were our neighbour for the 6 years we were at Annandale Crescent. Always there with garden advice, beer in hand at o’clock, always a yes if Loui needed a lift to school or pool, yes to any social event, handyman and advisor for all issues that arose.
    Good fun, great bloke, sadly missed.

  19. Thinking of all the Family – specially our dear friends Eleanore and John Fitz
    RIP Bryan

  20. Bryan was a much loved brother a man who knew so much and with whom I shared a lot. I am missing his little notes, quirky emails, and phone calls, tricks and jokes. His leaving us leaves a big hole in my heart.

  21. Much love to my friend, Bev. She and I went through Primary School together and we have kept in touch over all the years. I will miss Bryan on my visits to their home and also at the Hawksburn State/Primary School Reunions. My sincere condolences to Bev and her family. xxx

  22. We are all going to miss you Pates, your Kwikform Family have fond and amusing memories of this rascal. He picked his people and played many tricks which in themselves were innocent and lots of laughs for the observers. The good thing about Pates he was willing to take as good as he gave, and he was always there for you. One of the Kwikform family said to me; “Pates will certainly cause havoc in Heaven”. Treat him gently God he really does’nt mean it.

  23. Bryan Was a Good Friend and was the leader at Yarra Ranges Interest Group while I was his Deputy. I got to know him quite well over the years until he resigned, I could not see myself running the show as good as he did, So I resigned as well. He was a very inspiring gentleman.
