Example obituary

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of John Smith, beloved husband, father, and grandfather, who passed away on 5 May 5, 2023, at the age of 78. John was born on 17 July 1944, in Brisbane, Australia to proud parents William and Margaret Smith. He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Mary, his children Mark and Sarah, and his four grandchildren.

John was a true family man who treasured his time spent with loved ones. He was a dedicated husband who adored his wife Mary, and they shared many happy moments together over the years. He was a devoted father to his children Mark and Sarah, always providing love, guidance, and support throughout their lives. John was also a proud and doting grandfather to his four grandchildren, who brought him immense joy and happiness.

John was a man of great accomplishments and passions. He was a successful business owner, running his own company for over 30 years, and was highly respected in his industry. He was an avid sportsman who loved playing and watching cricket and rugby league football. He was also a passionate traveller, having visited numerous countries around the world with his family.

John was known for his kind heart, warm personality, and quick wit. He had a way of making everyone feel welcome and loved, and his generosity and compassion touched the lives of many. He will be deeply missed by his family and friends.

In honour of John's life, we would like to share a quote that he lived by: "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away." We hope that everyone who knew John will remember him fondly and cherish the moments that they shared with him. Rest in peace, John.
