I’m sorry to announce the passing of one of the most genial and generous people in the Hartley community.
Chris Bird passed away at 3 pm on Monday 8th April, 2013, aged 84.
He never regained consciousness after undergoing heart surgery on 22nd March.
Our sincere sympathy goes out to his sister, Mary, his niece, Janice, his nephew, Trevor, and his long term friend and companion, Pam.
I’m sure there are many more words to be written about this gentle man who was never short of words, but this is not the time.
A funeral service will be held for Chris at St John’s Anglican Church in Hartley on Friday, 12th April at 12 noon.
Meanwhile, a photographic tribute to Chris from the last 14 years of his life.
