Baz 158x122

Service. 04.09.2009

Basil Ernest Athol Yovanovic

Aged 48 Years 08.07.1961-27.08.2009

The farewell of Baz began with a service on Friday 4th September at Sacred Heart Catholic Church – Mount Druitt – officiated by Father Ashton, after which the celebration of Baz’s life continued within the North Chapel of Pinegrove Memorial Park, Minchinbury, officiated by Celebrant Michelle Latham (JP).

In true style, the celebration of his life began when Baz arrived at Pinegrove in his beloved Ute, driven by his devoted wife Leah. The procession of cars that followed was long – an indication of the legacy that Baz had left to many.

Over 120 of Baz’s closest family members and friends attended the service to say their farewell.

Baz’s sister Dora delivered memories of love that was shared between Baz and Leah, his sons Wade and Chad and the special relationship that Barbara & Dora also had with him.
