    Saddened to hear of the passing of a wonderful man, some great discussions had a drink or two at the bowls club. Sadly missed

    When I look back at my childhood there are so many fond memories.

    I loved Thursday’s at the Mildura show because on your way past our house, after you had been at the Lions Club stall all day, you would drop off the biggest bag of cinnamon donuts us girls had ever seen. Or going up to the stall at the show and the ladies saying “Oh Hi Kelly… your Syd’s grand daughter” and getting my donuts for free.

    This Groves family stature was founded by Syd and Margret, but I just knew them as Ma and Pa. It’s something as a kid I took for granted but as I grew older and wiser the pride I feel and associate with our family name only grows.

    Pa was always down in the shed doing his odd jobs, always smiling, always having a chat and I will miss that chuckle and cheeky smile he had.

    Even though we lost a bit of you towards the end the love and support your gave use leading up to that time stood with you right until the end.

    You will be sadly missed by us all here but we know your know resting with Ma.

    Love you always
    Kelly, Byron and Jack xx
