In loving memory of Neil Geoffrey Rankin "Rocky" who sadly passed away on 23rd May 2020

RANKIN Neil Geoffrey (Rocky):

Late of Lowood Queensland, passed away after a short illness on Saturday 23rd May 2020. At the time of his passing, Rocky was just 78 years of age.

Rocky will be sadly missed by his children Patricia, Cheryl, Bradley, Lorne, Trevor, Andrew and their partners.
Rocky or Grandpa Rocky as he was better known, will also be deeply missed by his adoring grandkids and great grandkids. Each of them will remember him for his constant teasing, tickles, cuddles, and loving advice.

Rocky will also be missed by his Navy mates, his fellow Vietnam Veterans, work mates from Ansett Airlines and his many friends around Australia.

At this time, Rocky's family would like to thank the Doctors, Nurses and Support staff of the Canossa Private Hospital for the exceptional love, care and empathy they so freely gave to their Dad that made his final days as happy and peaceful as possible.

The family would also like to acknowledge the Lowood RSL and its greater community for their love and support shown to Rocky throughout his later years.

Because of COVID-19, the attendance at his funeral service will be limited to 20 people. The Funeral will be held in Saint Augustine's Anglican Church, 56 Racecourse Road, Hamilton, or Friday 29th May 2020, commencing at 10:30 am. Viewing from 10:15 am.

The service will be streaming live on Zoom from 10:30 am. If anyone would like to access the live stream, please contact us at trevorrankin73@hotmail.com . Access to Zoom is limited to 100.

It's intended that a full memorial service will be held to celebrate Rocky's life at a later date. This will be widely advertised at the time.

In lieu of flowers, the family request you please kindly make donations to the Lowood RSL in Rocky's memory.
