I am so sad to hear of Brians passing. Many a happy hour was spent in his company on the fairways and greens of Fitzroy Golf Club. He was a top bloke. My condolences to Carol and the rest of Brians family.

Murray and I were very saddened to hear the news of Chardy's passing. Murray and Brian knew each other very well through all their sporting activities, many a battle on the tennis and squash courts took place. We would like to pass on our condolences to Caral and all the family and regret that we can not be there today to celebrate his life. May you rest in peace, Brian. Murray and Karin Lilley. xo

To Carol,Scott, and family,
We are sadly shocked at Chardys sudden departure. We spent many great years in Cook and Listers together giving purchasers every piece of our sporting knowledge.
I will miss our catch ups on Fillis Street as Brian exercised his wobbly body. We had some great laughs together. We will all miss him.

The Burmester Family.

Dear Carol
If there is anything we can do to help you during your time of grief we are here. Brian was a good neighbour and many memories were evoked when we read his obituary. I would look out my window and see him swinging a golf club. I nick named him Arnold Palmer, is just one of those memories. He will be sadly missed.
Much love, Kerin, Julianne, Kelvin and George.
