COLLARO Michael Aristide

Originally from Port Said, Egypt; late of 193 Moray Road New Farm.

Michael passed away in the Royal Brisbane and Woman’s Hospital Herston on Tuesday 23rd February 2016.

At the time of his passing he was just 90 Years of age.
Michael has now re-joined the love of his life and soulmate Lillian who passed before him.

Michael will be sadly missed by his son Roland, daughter in-law Sue and grandchildren: David, Andrew and Katie and great grandchildren: Joshua and Flynn, each of them will miss him for his loving advice, teasing and drawings that he did for each of them.

Michael’s family would also like thank the Doctors, Nurses and Support Staff of Bupa Age Care - New Farm as well as the staff of the Royal Brisbane and Woman’s Hospital involved in his Dialysis activities over the last six years, for the love care and attention that they so freely gave to Michael to make his declining years as comfortable as possible. I am also sure that those whom he gave one of his drawing, to will treasure it for ever.

Michael’s relatives and friends are warmly invited to attend his celebration of life service that will be held in the Chapel of the Pinnaroo Crematorium 294 Graham Road, Bridgeman Downs on Friday 4th March 2016 commencing at 3:00 Pm

Dad loved his family and he loved the people who were in his life including those who took special care of him at his aged care home in New Farm and at the Renal Unit at Royal Brisbane Hospital. He knew everyone by name and remembered all their birthdays which he marked with a handmade drawing addressed to them specifically. He spent each day drawing and covering the walls of his room with his representations of birds, trees and flowers. Every week he would play backgammon with me. The last game we played together the week before he died, Dad won. He remains the undisputed champion. RIP to a loving man.
