My darling Peter,

you were the light of my life. Although you are no longer with me in life, I still feel your love.

I honour our life together by focusing on the joy we shared surrounded by our beautiful family. You left this world and with you went a piece of my heart. You were the perfect husband, father and nonno. Until we meet again you will always be in my heart.

Your loving Tina


Words cannot explain what you meant to us. The way you lived your life, you have left us with not only the memories which we will cherish but also the guidance and path for the days , months and years that you will no longer be with us. You can rest well knowing that you have laid the foundations for us and will never be forgotten.

Love always Pino and Angela

Dear Dad,

How do I say thank you for all the love and guidance you have given to us. You always put your family first. You were always so patient with me and helped me whenever you could. I feel your absence so much, but when I miss you, I will rely on my memories to give me comfort. We love you dearly

Danny and Mary


You were the most brilliant man we’ve ever known. There was no one like you on this earth. You touched so many people with your quiet persona and elegance. We are so proud to have you as our father and will be missed forever more. Rest in God’s hands Dad. We are OK because you’re looking down on all of us, so we’re in safe hands. Miss you always Dad until we meet again.

Love Robert & Demi

Dearest Papá,

You were such a beautiful, caring and generous soul who taught us so much. You were and always will be an inspiration, one we went to for advice, the best father a son could ask for. We feel so blessed to have had you in our lives, if only we had a little more time.

You will be forever missed.

All our love, Cosi and Josey


No words can describe how much we love you.

Your heart was filled with so much love, pride and joy for your family. As long as we were all safe and happy, you were content. You simply lived for those you loved. You leave behind an extraordinary legacy which will live on through us and your adored grandchildren.

Forever in our hearts, Maurice and Megan

To our beautiful Nonno,

You taught us patience and to love our family (and the Crows) unconditionally. Thank you for the many years we got to watch you play cards with the men and sit at the head of the table admiring the people you loved. You were a true gentleman that we aspire to be. We will miss you so much Nonno and will continue your beautiful legacy. We know you are looking down on us and are protecting us forever. We lost you on Anzac Day and you showed time and time again how much fight you had in you. Rest In Peace to our hero.

Love from your grandchildren: Thomas, Claudia, Alexander, Lucas, Sienna, Oliver, Peter and Andrew.

To our brother-in-law Peter,

Gone are the happy days we shared together,

But not the memories, they last forever.

To us you weren’t a brother-in-law

but a brother and best friend.

We will always remember the special man you were, and you will remain in our hearts forever.

From Cosimo and Angela Cutri.

Zio Peter, thank you for being the best uncle anyone could ever ask for. We will miss the love that you showed us, your hello, kiss and big smile when you entered a room and your amazing way of giving the best advice. You are a true gentleman and we will be forever grateful that god chose you to be our uncle. We love you and miss you so much, say hello to Nonna and Nonno for us, until we meet again RIP.

Much Love Francesca, Vince, Natalie, Laura, Lina-Marie, Harry and Charlie.

Riposi in Pace
