Edwin Hugh Peucker
06 Jan 1934 – 02 Sep 2020
Dearly loved partner of Coral.
Sadly missed by Greg, Lisa, Warren and Jeff.
Loved and remembered by all the grandchildren.
His strength, wisdom and courage
inspired us all, but his battle with
illness finally defeated his

Days will pass which will turn into years,
but will be remembered with silent tears.
Peacefully sleeping forever more.

Great uncle of Luke, Olivia, Matthew,

Always kind, gentle and protective,
he enveloped us all with his

so proudly in the 2000 olympics, we will always love and cherish him for bearing our
flame, firing our spirit and sharing
with us the light of knowledge and life.

    We loved hearing his stories about different competitors in the Stawell Gift and his knowledge of athletics. And of course enjoying a glass of red with him.
