Walter Tarca -

John Coppe was a caring and decent man who helped me a lot in my life and provided many firsts for me! My first boating experience, fishing, bowling, both ten pin and lawn bowls amongst many others. John was actually a very gifted bowler who had tremendous hand eye coordination and touch. He helped me and my family so much when we were starting out and never sought recognition or anything in return. A rockstar on the dance floor and a wonderful caring family man. I will never forget his kindness and heartfelt advice to me over many years. Thank You John. Rest in Peace. A life well lived and who will never be forgotten. Walter Tarca

Maria, Mirco, Francesca, Daniela and Josef -

John Coppe (Zio Nino) was always present in our family in thoughts. Unfortunately, we could see each other only rarely because of the distance. We enjoyed being together with Maria back in Australia very much. For that we are very grateful that we had him and his family around us. It was very nice to hear him talking to Maria on the phone. He never forgot his native language and also used beautiful old words. We will never forget him. Mirco Francesca and Maria are with you in our thoughts. We mourn with you. All from Crocetta
