Brian Francis Byrne 

Brian passed away peacefully on 27th December 2022 at Jack Lonsdale Lodge at the age of 81.

Husband of Bev who passed in 2014. Father of Lavinia, Darren, Kerrie, Marianne (dec) and Belinda. Father in law of Geoff, Yupadee and Sil. Grandfather of Brayden, Marcus, Cameron, Joshua, James, Charlotte and Ruby, and great grandfather of Flynn, Riley and Lily.

He will be remembered in many ways including as a hard worker, skilled in many trades, always willing to lend a hand including as a long serving CFA member, cantankerous at times but a mate to many, father and grandfather.


Words are few, thoughts are deep,

Memories of you are ours to keep.

Remembered with love by Lavinia, Geoffrey, and ‘Poppa’ to Josh.


Dad, your life was full of great people and fore-filling experiences. Your life journey was vast and unique and you did many things many could not do. I was always proud.
Darren, Yupadee and James.


Dad, We will remember you as the strong, can do anything man who taught us so much over the years, and as loved Poppa of the girls.

Now you’re in a better place with Mum.

Rest in peace.
