Dear Anne, David, Mark..My prayers and thoughts are with you all at this sad time. Fond memories of the little chats with Owen when he rang the centre to speak to mum. Love Pat xx.
Dear Anne, I was sorry to hear of the passing of Owen, an event which I wonder whether it was a mix of immense sadness for yourself and your family but perhaps with a little sense of relief or acceptance that his pain is now over and that he is now in a better place. My heart aches for you at this time as you grieve the loss of your beloved son. With much love and thoughts, Heather Bunting
Unique, generous with his talents and thoughtful beyond his years, is how we remember Owen. Dear Anne, David and Mark, may love and prayers help carry you through your deep sorrow and may you be comforted knowing he is now where being loved and at peace is beyond anything we could imagine .
Owen you did not go alone as part of us went with you the day God called you home. You were an inspiration to us all. Hugs to all the family, David, Anne and Mark. Now in God's loving care.
Always considerate and helpful, and a pleasure to know. Owen's presence will be dearly missed in the years to come.
A very special young man I met when he was just two days old. Such a devoted and loving son. He will be so sadly missed . Our love to Anne David and Mark and to Mac and Cliffie who will miss him too.
My heart goes out to you, Anne, David and Mark... Owen takes with him all the love and care with which you surrounded him, right to the end. In the days ahead may it comfort you all that he left this world knowing that deeply - and that is the greatest gift of all. Rest now in peace, Owen.
Dear Anne, David and Mark, our deepest and heartfelt condolences to you all. Owen was taken away from us too soon and questioning why this happened will yield no favorable answer, instead I would like to celebrate all the wonderful things that Owen accomplished, what I believe he stood for and how important his friendship is to me/us. I have known Owen for the past 9 years, first meeting him at Blue Scope Distribution, working in the same department. Along the way I found that we both along with Enzo Taranto and Paul Puia had the same fun loving, mischievous and relaxed attitude to life thus forming a close bond of friendship and mate-ship. Owen was the funnyman of our group and his quick wit and deadpan humor always had us all in stitches, every time we had our shindigs, for that he infamously inherited the nick name "Fluffy", after one of the worlds renowned stand-up comic. Owen was also straightforward and honest and told you or advised you as he knew it. The 3 of us had a deep appreciation for his opinion. Owen was a man of his word; If he said he would do something, you could count on him to get it done. He was always kind, caring and considerate and many a time helped me out at work or in life in general and I know Enzo and Paul would echo the same sentiment. He was a great listener and we would share stories and opinions without any prejudice. We shared some great times and made great memories along the way, whilst always watching out for one another. At BSD, Owen and Paul initiated the "Rapid Set" award which was passed around to close team mates at work when they did not turn up due to being unwell, or maybe even if they just took annual leave for a day. It was a lighthearted way of saying "toughen up". He always brightened up the room with his sarcasm and wit and always got people to laugh and see the lighter side of life. Owen was gifted with a good singing voice too, and after a few shots of sambuka, the three of us were privileged to hear some really good tunes. We 3 are blessed to have met Owen and become good friends. Owen trusted the 3 of us and held us in high esteem and vice versa. Emotionally, it was difficult for us to accept the news of his illness, however Owen was brave and handled it stoically. After being told it was terminal, we were determined to provide him with whatever support he needed to get him through these trying times. It was tough, being unable to help him, but he always maintained a strong persona and never wanted our conversations to focus on his condition. We still went out and watched movies and talked about life in general. Selfless as he always was, he wanted us to remember him for the good times and his lively personality. Goodbye my dear friend, you are now free from the pain of your earthly body. I know your spirit will always be with us, mate, sharing in the love and laughter. Your memory will stay with us, live with us, we will not forget you Fluffy. Rest in Peace mate. Pep, Shifty and Yogi
