Funeral Tribute

Kenneth Harvey “Toby”




Our beloved father, Toby, passed peacefully at the Mater Hospital Brisbane following a lengthy battle with vascular dementia. Toby was originally from Havelock, New Zealand, and spent a lot of his time fishing around Nelson and the Sounds. He eventually moved to Australia, and has since enjoyed his retirement amongst his family.

He is survived by his loving wife, Violeta, and his children, David, Ken, Ruth, Cate, Bruce, Glenn and Leemay, as well as their partners and children.

Toby’s friends and family are warmly invited to attend his celebration of life service that will be held in the chapel of the Mt Gravatt Crematorium (582 Mains Road, Macgregor 4109) on Thursday 29th February 2024 commencing at 11AM, with a wake to follow at his house.

For those who are unable to attend the service in Brisbane, a livestream will be available online, and will commence approximately 5 minutes before the official start time.
