    Rest in peace to an absolute gentleman and great bloke.
    It was a pleasure to experience early life down in Johanna with you.
    The world is a darker place without the light you brought to it.
    Fly high mate, you’ll forever be missed.
    Love always mate

    Loved growing up with you by the beach even if it did feel like Jem and I had way too many brothers.
    Will definitely miss our Christmas Eve catch-ups. RIP ❤️

    Always the professional but permanent smile on his face, great bloke and a gentleman.

    My days with you in them were always filled with laughter.
    You certainly knew how to have fun and you always brightened everyone’s day with your shenanigans.
    One of the funniest moments you and I shared was when you genuinely asked me ‘if there were dinosaurs at the Zoo’.
    You were always a good friend to everyone that was lucky enough to meet you and during our days working together you always had the time to help anyone that needed assistance or advice. That’s the kind of human you always were; generous, loving and caring.
    This world won’t be the same without you in it to continue all of your old, new and future relationships you created with everyone you met.
    You will be very missed Leo.
    My sincere condolences to your family! Xx

    Our hearts are with Sue, Ron and family, we are so saddened by the tragic loss of dear Leo.
    We will always treasure the memories we made growing up, from weekends on the farm to bumping into him on the Lambys dance floor.
    He always had time for others and made everyone around him smile. We will miss you Leo.
    All our love,
    The Ruffins

  11. It had been a minute since we have caught up, but you were always someone who left a lasting impression on everyone who met you.
    Truly one of the finest people I’ve crossed paths with, an absolute gentleman and generous to a fault.
    Condolences to your family at this tough time

  12. Liam
    Since meeting at uni so many years ago, I have considered you one of my closest friends.
    We had some fantastic times and adventures together over the years that I will never forget.
    You were great fun to be with, and a genuinely good person, always so positive and encouraging.
    Simply being with Liam, gave you a pleasant feeling, it’s hard to put it into words. But he really listened, was so sincere and made you feel very comfortable. And it didn’t matter what you would be doing, if it was with Liam it would be memorable. That was him, there weren’t any bad times, could’ve been doing anything, he would make the best of it for the people he was with. And so many stories would come from it. And it’s why I think he made so many good friends over the years.
    Wherever you went with Liam, he would know someone, and know them well, which is the difference.
    He will never be forgotten.
    Liam was such a truely good, genuine person, and it’s such a tragic loss.
    When in the bay, or thinking of dirty old unit 8, or having a quiet stubbie, I’ll be thinking of you.
    Thankyou for the time shared.
    Miss you forever mate.
    Sending love to Jem, Tim, Ron and Sue and families.

    Our love and thoughts are with all of the Harrington family at this deeply sad time.
    With love from Annabel, Martin, Katie, Eleanor and James

    Roz and I feel very privileged to have had a chat and a few beers with Liam at the footy just days before this tragic accident.
    During the last quarter and in typical Liam fashion, he gave me his last can of beer. With a big grin.
    Our thoughts now are with our good friends – the Harringtons. Roz & Mark O’Loughlin.
