Alistair (Ali as he was known then) and I first met in 1954 when we became eager students at Wesley College.
We had much in common so quickly became firm fiends. Sitting side by side in class and sharing our times together on weekends and school holidays. Sometimes at my place in South Perth riding bikes or swimming and boating on the Swan River. More often though, at his place in Lesmurdie or at his Toodyay farm or at Frankland and other great places, wherever things were most exciting. There are so many memories that will last forever.
As the tides of life changed we somewhat drifted apart, however, we did keep in touch and my wife Gay and I are so glad that we could call Ali and Edna our true fiends.
Our sympathy and best wishes go to Edna and all the McNabb families.
Rest in Peace Alistair (Ali)
Edna and family, we tried to be with you to bid Alistair farewell but were unable to due to the "lockdown" it was really good to be able to join the service with modern technology.
Our best wishes to all the McNabb clan as you mourn for this special man.
Rest in Peace Al.
Big sister Carole and Robin
Uncle Ali I have very fond memories of school holidays on the farm in Frankland & spending time with you, Aunty Edna & my cousin’s. When I think back now you were an environmentalist before your time trying to rectify the salt issues on the land.
My love & thoughts are with you Aunty Edna, Donna, Sheryl, Lisa & families.
It was a pleasure to have known Alistair. His enthusiasm for life and for God was so much a part of who he was. Our deepest sympathies to Edna and the rest of the family. May God comfort you all in your journey of grief xx
First met Alister in 1977 when he cleared some bush for us. He advised us to use a dam straight blade instead of a root rake blade in Yate country, allowing him to shear off all the stumps. He sunk a dam for us with one of the first hydraulically driven bulldozers. Alister was very accommodating, innovative in his thinking and a very engaging and well liked individual. He will be greatly missed. Sincere sympathy to all Alister's family.
Just a great bloke and mate , wonderful sense of humour , and sense of fair play , glad we spent some years working together , friendly , kind, helpful and generous up to the very end , glad you are with Jesus , will see you again , miss you ol dozing mate ,love to Edna and family .
A real pioneer of change both on the land and in relationships. Al's life is an inspiration.
