  1. Dear, Dear Craig. I am so very sorry to hear about your passing.
    My time with you in Melbourne and Perth was everything everyone who knew you would expect – fun, funny, soulful, dramatic, etc.
    My sympathies go to Dail, Nik and to all of Craig’s family.
    A bright and funny Light.
    Thank you so much for sharing this service with us.

  2. Thanks to all the speakers. Tough gig, but you conveyed the essential Craig so honestly. My favourite thing about Craig was his generosity. The (too) few times we spoke, I don’t think we ever had a serious word between us, but even though he was a million times funnier than me he never held it over me or anyone else. He brought us along with him and included us in the joke, wherever it took us, which could be somewhere shocking, but he often made himself the butt of the joke, or sometimes joke was his butt. Hairy times. Greatly missed.

  3. What a beautiful service and wonderful eulogies. It evoked memories of Craig and Pauline’s wedding such laughter and love. Much love love to Pauline and the boys.

  20. Thoughts and sympathies to family and friends. Wonderful eulogies everyone! Such a pleasure to know Craig. A great comedian, friend, person. Ross x

  21. My thoughts are with Craig’s family and in particular his two sons. Craig and I were at Mildura West Primary School and Mildura High School together. What a crazy, funny and kind kid he was. I cherish the memories from our 25 year high school reunion in 2014 where I (and indeed, all of us) had the most wonderful night of Craig Astbury at his very best. He said that night that his greatest achievement was his two boys – he was so proud!

    Vale Craig!

  23. My deepest sympathy and condolences to Craig’s family and friends… he was a delightfully naughty and funny bloke whose humour could slice through BS like a hot knife through butter. He will be missed very much.

  24. Cherished memories of a special friend who shared a passion for the stage and listening to QUEEN. Forever a special place in my heart. Love to Babs, Darren, Craig’s children and all who loved him. “Your kindness has broken the Ogre’s spell….. “. Xx

  25. I am so grateful for having known Craig, and honoured to have had the privilege of sharing the stage with him on more than one occasion, and marvelling at his innate ability to entertain.

    My most sincere condolences to all who share such profound grief in having lost such a wonderful man.

    Love and Light.
