PHILBERT, Hugh Evan Claude:
Born 18.8.1935, died 1.2.2018. Adored husband of Dawn for over 60 years, beloved dad and father-in-law of Karen & John, Brett & Debbie, Tania & Greg, Grandad/Popeye to 6 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren. Dad your legacy lives on in the songs we sing, the sport we play, our laughing shoulders, ugly feet and fondness for whiskey and inappropriate humour. A private cremation has already taken place but a memorial to celebrate Dad will be held at the Lychgate Funeral Home, 7 Johnsonville Road, Johnsonville at 1.00pm today, Monday, 5 February. In lieu of flowers donations to the Stroke Foundation NZ would be appreciated and may be left at the service.
