We would like to thank everyone who contributed to the lovely memories of our Husband and Dad. It has been very touching to know how much he was liked and loved by people far and wide. He would have been very humbled by your words, as are we.
We only met you a couple of times but heard many stories from Vanessa and Chris. It was a pleasure to meet you and we know tha you will be very much missed. Deepest sympathies to all families.
I have such wonderful memories of visiting the farm near Eneabba with my partner, June Thomson in 2005. Drinking early morning tea outside; sipping quickly under our fly nets...but never quite fast enough it seemed. Then it was off to one of the paddocks to help rebuild a fence that had been blown down in a fierce wind...Kelvin was very patient with the two 'greenhorns' from Canada as we struggled to do the job properly.
We enjoyed a foray later in the day with Heather, Di and Art into the nearby sandy bush to photograph the wonderful spring flowers....we were so engrossed with their beauty when I recall June suddenly saying..."Yikes, there could be snakes here !!" I have a great photo of Art standing amongst the flowers...his pink fly net billowing in the breeze.
June and I are the richer for having met such a wonderful man....our sincere condolences to all the Sewell and Sampson familes....Don Wilson and June Thomson, Canada.
A dinky di Aussie the Eneabba community is is a better place due to your twenty odd years here RIP old mate. The tennis courts not the same without you. And the girls can rest easy without us partnering against them!
Ilona, Ariana and I have wonderful memories of visiting the farm and Heather and Kelvin's warm hospitality. I remember Kelvin's patience with all of my questions about cattle farming and him laughing at how excited we were to see all of the kangaroos. I am sure he will be greatly missed.
At Eneabba, Kelvin took me on his early morning inspection tour of the paddocks where his cows were calving. At one paddock, 3 horses trotted up to the fence when they saw Kelvin and the Ute, but ran away when they saw me get out of the Ute. Kelvin told me to wait beside the fence and he went to bring the horses back. 15 minutes later, there was the sound of distant hoofbeats and then Kelvin appeared mounted on a dark horse travelling at a full gallop and closely followed by the other 2 horses. After two high speed laps in the corner of the paddock, Kelvin and his three horses disappeared over the ridge, and the thunderous sound of hoofbeats faded away. I had not got the photo that I wanted in my camera - the ride past was too awesome and exciting - but the sight and sound was indelibly recorded in my brain. Kelvin was the epitome of the talented, dedicated and hardworking farmer, and he was also a delightfully entertaining gentleman. Ride On For Ever, Kelvin!
Condolences to Heather, Vanessa, Quenton and Families on the heartbreaking loss of Kelvin. Thinking of you at this time, and of the many memories made with you and Kelvin over the years. Ian, Kate, Elliot and Violet
I was very saddened to hear the news of Kelvins death . My children and I first stayed at the family farm in 1991 shortly after my husbands death. Our first Australian adventure , the family were so welcoming and we have treasured memories of being driven round the paddocks in the back of his trusty Ute. very Nevil Shute . Kelvin was a man of few words but much laid back action . He will be missed by many. My best wishes to Heather , Quentin and Vanessa .
Kelvin, for the first time, I am lost for words. There are none that can express the loss I and my boys feel, on hearing of your passing. You were like a dad to me: always there to share a laugh over those endless coffees you made me, or to give comfort when a shoulder was needed to cry on. You were always there. It will never be forgotten, how you and Heather were both there, unwaveringly, for my boys and I when we needed it the most. Your gentle caring soul will be dearly missed but always remembered. You will forever hold a special place in my heart – a love that has no bounds knows no end. Earths loss is heavens gain and now you are at peace. Eternally in our hearts Mandy, Jack and Max xx .
Deepest condolences to Heather, Vanessa, Quenton and families.
We are thankful for the contributions Kelvin made to our school and community over the years, particularly his ongoing support of our Quiz Night. He was a great role model for our students with his kindhearted and helping nature, and will be dearly missed by many.
Our thoughts are with you on Friday.
We would like to wish Heather, Vanessa, Quenton and Family our Deepest Condolences. Kelvin was such a kind, funny and gentleman, he will be missed. So many special memories ♥

Bye brother in law gone but you will always be remembered you were one of the best ever. just sorry cant be there.
It was a privilege to know such a kind, thoughtful gentleman .
Always willing to help out in any situation. A humble man with a great sense of humour and a mean tennis serve. A much respected man in our community. Our love to Heather and family.
Kelvin both Maitland and I wish we had got to know you earlier than we did! We would have been great mates! You shared a birthday with Maitland and Maitland loved your farming chats. Thank you for sharing your little girl with us in Wongan for those few years. It was a special time and the Wongan kids will remember forever 'Miss Sewell'. Hugs to all the family. Maitland and Gayle.
Rest In Peace, Dad. You were my best mate and you will certainly be missed. You were a very caring and loving person who gave me the best years of my life growing up on the farm. You taught me how to be respectful, stay out of debt, and always made me laugh with your daggy Dad jokes. Love you to a planet beyond the moon and back.
He was a wonderful person, always willing to help out when anyone asked him. He will be sorely missed by many.
As a brother-in-law he was the best.
