ROHAN, William James “Bill” 🎥

Passed away peacefully on the 25th September 2021.
The gates of heaven opened wide; a very special person walked inside. If my loved could have saved you, you would never have gone. You will always be in my broken heart.
Loved husband of Shirley, loved father of Peter, Julie-ann (dec), Jim, Susan, Michael and their families.

Much loved father of Peter, friend to Janelle and Pop of Tegan and Ailie. Irreplaceable mate and inspirational role model, forever missed.

A loving father, father In-Law and Pop. You will always be remembered for the cheeky, caring and loving personality. “Hold onto your hats”
You will be sadly missed and forever in our hearts, love Jim, Belinda, Stacy, Millsy, Gary, Madi, Ash, Heidi, Bec, Anthony, Jess & Isacc. Great Grandchildren Nara, Hudson, Alexa, Bella, Willow (dec), Sadie & Kaiden xx

In loving memory of William James Rohan, aka Dad, Pop and Super Pop. God has decided it’s your time to rest as you have worked hard enough. So may you shine bright in the night sky now and forever always watching over your loved ones from above. We are not saying goodbye, we are saying cya later alligator. Till we meet again, we love you and miss you forever and always. Your daughter Susan, your Grandchildren Christina, Danielle, Billy, Allan and Nathan. And your Great Grandchildren Lilly, Amelia, Thomas and Isabelle.
“Everyone Hold onto your hats”!

Dad, how can I write down words that have enough meaning of how much you meant to us? Words don’t justify what you have given us over the years, or how much love we have for you. We will be forever lost without having you around. Until we meet again, love always your son Michael, Daughter In-Law Vicki, Grandchildren Gemma & Geoff, Jordyn, Taylah and Great Grandchild Jade.

  4. Never forgotten.

    I was truly blessed to have you as my grandfather. You brought such amazing magic, love and fun to my childhood and i’ll treasure those memories forever.
    I’ll never forget your escapades of trying to catch Santa and the Easter Bunny for us every year. Especially the time you showed up on Christmas morning covered in bandaids from ‘lassoing Santa’s sleigh and then falling off into the blackberry bushes.’
    You filled our childhood with stories, music, hugs, chin-ups, antics and games of ‘dead dogs.’

    We will miss you, ‘Poppabill.
    ‘Hooroo’ and ‘Hold onto your hat!’
    Give Mum a hug for me. ❤️❤️

    Love your number one Poppabill, Sarah.
    Together with Brad and the next generation of Poppabills, Ella and Connor.
