I rise today to mark the very sad passing of Trevor Davies. Today a community - a community in the truest sense - gathered at Pitt St Uniting Church to bid farewell to Trevor Edward Davies. At the young age of just 55, Trevor died on 14 June 2011 of a heart attack.
His devastated family spoke of a beloved brother and an uncle for whom they cherished.
A man quick with a joke and a long and infectious laugh.
They told how as a teenager he had tried to revive his father after a fatal asthmatic attack.
They told of his undying love for his mother.
A man who always had something interesting to say - just as he was always able to listen to the stories of others.
