    would have been so proud of the way you honoured him in this tribute.

  3. Many happy memories of cousin Noel when we were kids. Playing cricket in the backyard at Ascot Vale and Noel coming to the farm and staying with us – helping us sow a crop. But after hearing all that he had done in his life we felt that we didnt know him at all. What a life well lived. Our sympathy to his family, Joyce and John and family.

  4. Dear Leanne, Sebastian, Sarah, Emma, Joyce, Cameron, Kylie, Dad (John), Stephen and extended family,

    Well done on a fitting and quite special tribute for Noel. The reflections captured the essence of a wonderful man who was respected, admired and loved by many.

    Love,
    Matt, Kathryn, Alexandra, Liam and Cameron.

  5. Dear Sar, Em, Seb, Cam, & Kylie,

    Such a lovely celebration of a beautiful man. So many wonderful memories shared. Mr Fitz was a great Dad, grandfather and friend. I’m so sorry for your loss, he will be fondly remembered and very sadly missed.

    Much love to you all,
    Mel & Bruce xoxoxoxo

  6. Seems I have inadvertently hijacked the tributes, as my computer kept making it look like nothing had happened. I hope you are able to pick the one you like the most and delete the remaining 10!

    I’m blaming Noel for the glitch!

    His way of having the last word with me. 🙂

  7. Dear Leanne, Emma, Sarah, Sebastian Joyce and families,

    A beautiful service and tribute to a wonderful and much loved man. Your reflections definitely captured Noel’s essence, his warmth, generosity and genuine nature. I was so blessed to enjoy Noel’s friendship and kindness. He will be dearly missed and always fondly remembered by the Lay family.

    Thank you for sharing today with us. Sending love to you all during this very sad time.
    Liz and family

  8. I will miss Noel’s cheeky updates from HQ, interrupting my work with saucy pics of our favourite politician and her boyfriend, beers, chips and a grinning Paddy, his partner in crime for this particular activity. Will also miss enjoying the fruits of his foraging trips to DJs and sunsets on top of the world.

    Voleak also sends her love from Cambodia. She will never forget being able to wave down at the chief of the village on her very first trip to another country, while enjoying a roast dinner big enough to feed her entire home town.

    Today’s service was a beautiful tribute to a great man. Love to you all, Kylie

  18. Noel touched so many lives and was dearly loved by all.
    He will be sadly missed.
    He would have been looking over that service today with a smile and would have been very proud.
    Sending all of our love during this difficult time.
    Ben, Melissa and family.

  19. RIP Uncle Noel. Great to see a man that made sure his life was for living!

    Thoughts are with you Sebastian, Sarah and Emma + Families.

    Great service and speeches.

  20. Dear Sebastian, Kylie, Sarah, Cam & Emma,

    Our condolences to you all on such a difficult day. Thank-you for allowing us to share in the loving celebration and to pay our respects to Mr Fitz. Our thoughts are with you all even if they are from afar.

    I will miss Noel’s cheeky updates from HQ, interrupting my working day with saucy comments and pics of our favourite politicians, chips, beer and Paddy, his partner in crime for this particular activity. Will miss sharing the fruits of his foraging trips to DJs and sunsets on the roof of the world, but at least now we can eat eggplant and chilli.

    Noel’s loss is also being felt in Cambodia this week, and Voleak sends her love, too. He made a very special contribution to her very first trip to another country, and being able to look down on “the chief of the village” while enjoying a canape is something she will never forget.

  26. Mr Fitz,
    The Beers at HQ’s won’t ever taste the same without you, but rest assured the laughs we shared over stories, jokes and extravagant tales won’t ever be forgotten. My social calendar now has a gaping hole but the memories will ‘sort of’ fill that.
    Thanks for being a great mate Fitz’
    Cheers Paddy

Will miss enjoying the fruits of your foraging trips to DJ’s Food Hall, the naughty pics of Jules and Panto, and all the other high jinx. Voleak sends her love too, your loss is being felt in Cambodia this week as well.

  37. Dear Leanne, Sebastian, Sarah, Emma, Joyce, John and the family,

    We’ve joined you at least in this way, and wish we could have been there. We were very moved by the service and reminded of so many of Noel’s warm qualities and good times and, yes, the absolute strength of his family commitments and kindness.

    Brian: He was such a major part of my life and I can’t quite believe he’s not there at the end of the phone, with a joke, a story, an update on family and Leanne and then the business of our shared sporting interests. Noel was such a great friend. I will remember always .the wonderful times we shared.

  38. To the Fitzpatrick family,
    I loved your father/poppa as my own. I feel so lucky to have known him and to have counted him as a friend. He was a truly great friend and a great man and I miss him so much. My thoughts and my heart is with you all. Thank you for sharing your service with us in this way today…it was such a beautiful occasion.
    Much love to you all,
    Justin

  39. Dear Leanne, Sebastian, Sarah and Emma,

    You and your families have been so blessed to have had the guiding love and companionship of Noel in your life. My sincere condolences on your loss.

    Rest easy Noel. It’s been one of my greatest privileges to have called you a friend.

    Chris Chris

  40. Dear Sebastian, Sarah, and Emma. My heart breaks with yours today as i watch you all say goodbye to your beautiful dad. He was a wonderful man and i wish we could have been there to celebrate his life and support you today. He was a special one and we were blessed to have shared the love, warmth and humour he showed to all. We will never forget you Mr Fitz. Much love to you and your families today and always. Fi & Jase McCrohan XX

  41. What a beautiful celebration of Noel’s life. It was a privilege to know him for the short time I did. On my second day of working at the CAE he took me out for coffee, and did so regularly thereafter.
    My thoughts go out to all the Fitzpatrick clan.
    Annabel

  42. This was such a beautiful service for such a wonderful man. It was so lovely to hear everyone’s fond memories and funny stories. He will be so sadly missed.

  44. Dear Sarah, Emma and Sebastian – and of course, you all – I am really sorry about Noel, but the service was really lovely. It was great to get that sense of his early years and the abiding sense of family and being engaged constantly. Love to you all, and thinking of you. I’ll sit in a cafe soon and have a chat with someone I never met before – and thank Noel for the prompt! Tim

  45. We are sending love and all our thoughts to the family in this time.
    A very loved beard to say the least!
