Jeff Rey

This morning at 2:00am our late father’s younger brother John RAPLEY sadly passed away, leaving behind his beloved wife, our Aunty Nadine, sons Steve Rapley and Danny RAPLEY, and their extended families.

Uncle John is a former Police Officer as well and once worked as the Police Commissioner’s driver.

He attended my attestation parade all those years ago offering me sage advice, and he was always one to greet you with a big smile, a firm handshake and a kind word.

RIP Uncle John.

Our profound and sincere thoughts and condolences go out to our Northern Beaches cousins and dear Aunty left to grieve a wonderfully devoted and loving human being.

Jeff Rapley   30 July 2020
