Oliver, Katrina and Lionel are the children of Jeffrey Law, 66, who died in a farming accident.
Jeff became trapped beneath farm equipment at his cattle farm in Piora, near Casino on Saturday, June 11.
His grown-up children remembered their father and his passion for farming.
“Dad had the first Brahman stud in the Northern Rivers. Brahmans became his obsession.”
Jeff came from a dairy farm and was greatly influenced by his parents.
“He was a typical bushie. He was bold and talkative.
“If you pulled up for a yarn, it was always half an hour.”
Jeff went through plenty of hardships in his life and he pushed through, his children said.
“He always looked on the bright side – never the negative.”
It was the farm that took up all of Jeff’s time.
“He was never not on the farm.
“We never had a holiday with Dad. He was a workaholic and did everything to his utmost best.”
Jeff grew up on Hogarth Range and later developed a passion for working dogs and stock horses.
“He was a genuine man with the biggest smile anyone had ever seen.”
Jeff never entered his cattle into shows even though they were sought after.
“He was a quiet achiever.”
The funeral is at the Parkview Funeral Home in Casino on July 8 at 11am.
