LITCHFIELD, Douglas Murray

It is with broken hearts we announce the passing of our greatest love, Doug, at home in Robinvale on Saturday January 20, 2024, aged 75 years. Loved husband of Bev, adored father of Shanna and Kyla, grandfather of Dane and Summer and special friend of Geoff and Simon.


I was supposed to spend the rest of my life with you,
And then I realised you spent the rest of your life with me,
I smile because I know you loved me till the day you went away,
And will keep loving me till the day we meet again.
- Bev
You were simply the best Dad,
I Love you, Kyla
Death leaves a heartache, no one can heal
Love leaves a memory, no one can steal
Forever in our hearts, you'll always stay
We'll love and remember you, every day.
- Kyla & Simon
The loss of my father will always sting
But now, everything I do is in honour of him.
Love you Dad, Shanna
Your battle was so short
So now we mourn
For us to move forward
you have shown us your support
Keep on driving your Holdens
As this will be the final roar.
- Geoff & Shanna
I love your red SS ute,
How you always gave it a boot
I love how you taught me to be a man
You will always be my biggest fan
Little Dougie I have always been called
Grandad you are the best overall
I want to make you proud
As you float above the clouds
- Dane Murray AKA Little Dougie
Grandad, Grandad all we ever had was love
And now you are above
I pushed your limits
Every few minutes
As I was your youngest girl
You were my favourite in this world
Love love love you Grandad
- Summer
You memory is a treasure I hold in my heart.
- Kathy
Thank you Doug for being such a huge part of our lives,
Hot teaspoons and all, you are one of a kind
Your understanding heart and intelligent mind
You will be missed for the rest of our lives.
- Love Mal, Bill, Jo, Mark, Brook, Juke, Alby & Ari.
Here’s to Doug, what a guy
Now looking down from up in the sky
Going to miss the friendship comradeship and fun
You're one of a kind, a son of a gun
Gone way to soon
At least only a short time you had to suffer
To me you were so special, just like a brother
A wonderful man day or night
A brilliant mate, now gone out of sight
You  will never be forgotten or be away
In our hearts forever you will always stay.
Going to miss you mate,
- Alistair


In keeping with Doug’s wishes a private funeral has been held.

    Great man,
    Big heart,
    Wild from the wery start.
    Sugar coating,
    Not your thing.
    You lived you life with so much sting.
    Mostly quiet but now and then,
    You’d stir it up with,
    Is that all you’ve got,
    or why don’t you go back and have a real shot.
    Eternally youthful, forever a smolder.
    The opinions you offered,
    Could never be bolder.
    But you forgave mistakes,
    You were always brutely honest,
    And you loved your family with all your heart.
    Your memories will always make me smile,
    I’ll keep the tears few.
    And tonight I sink some Bundy’s for you.

    My thoughts and heart are with you all at this time.

    Paula O’Bryan
    Their could never be another Doug.
