Cyril Short (28 Dec 1926 - 16 Jul 2016)
Cyril passed away at Rice Village on 16/7/2016. In his 90th year of a life well lived.
Dearly loved husband of Isabelle.
Precious father of Wendy and Geoff.
Dear father-in-law to Phillip and Brenda.
Adored Pop of Grant, Simon, Mitchell, Alex, Daniel, Jessikah and Ryan.
Friend to Beth, Emma, Kirsty and Adam.
We’ve known lots of pleasures
At times endured pain
We’ve lived in the sunshine
And walked in the rain
Now we are separated
For a time apart,
But we are not alone
You’re forever in my heart.
Peace at last.
“It takes a little darkness for us to see the stars and a whole lifetime to reach them”
Dad, you were my star on Earth and now one in heaven.
Thank you for the love you gave and the way you cared,
My memories of you will never die.
I will remember you every day.
Your loving daughter. Wendy.
Fond memories of jokes and good times,
I’m sure you’ll have the right map to get to heaven.
Respected father in law of Phillip
May lawn bowls be curved
And your golf shots straight
Remember your tools to fix Heaven’s gate
Should you feel the urge for a midnight raid
The fridge is well stocked with ice-cream and lemonade.
We are privileged to have known such a remarkable soul
We’ll see you again on the 19th hole.
Rest easy Pop! Your loving Grandsons Grant, Simon, Mitch and Alex XXOO
To my dear amazing Dad,
From the day I was born to the day you passed away you taught me so much. Those life lessons have served me well Dad and every day I will cherish all the wonderful memories I have of you. Family always came first for you and I couldn’t have wished for a better one. There is nothing more special than the bond between father and son, we had it in spades Dad.
Watch over us Dad and while you’re at it, see if anyone knows how that bloody tie-breaker works!!
Your loving son Geoff.
A gentle man who loved to tinker with the car, an adventure, a bowl of sweets and a laugh.
Now resting peacefully. Love Bren
Loved tinkering, loved lawn bowls, loved golf, loved the Cats, loved family, loved life.
Rest peacefully Pop.
Love Jessikah and Daniel XO
“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
This is never more true than for a man who lived such an incredible life and the way he has shaped all of us is something that will never truly die.
You’ll always be loved Pop and you’ll never be forgotten.
Rest peacefully Pop Love Ryan XO
