Bob’s backyard funeral

Picaluna farewelled John Beverley in the backyard of his bushland home.

Family, friends and neighbours gathered to say goodbye, bringing camping chairs and joining together in a family-led occasion.

John helped build his family home 34 years ago, so it was the obvious choice for his funeral. He was also the artist that drew all the cartoon characters for Arnott’s biscuits.

It was a beautiful farewell which concluded with a moving guard of honour along the street as John left home for the last time.
