Stalwart's funeral set for Monday

RELATIVES and friends are invited to attend a graveside committal for Michael Boucher, to be held at Wallangarra Cemetery on Monday, May 13 at 10am.

A celebration of life and memorial gathering at the Ballandean Soccer Club will follow at 11am.

The Stanthorpe Agricultural Show Society 'stalwart' passed away on Saturday following a battle with cancer.

Michael was presented with a life membership of the Show Society last year and had been involved with the show since he was 16.

Society president Brett Boatfield said Michael was 'a very genuine bloke' and his presence at the show would be missed.

"If you wanted something, just call on him,” he said.

On receiving his life membership, Michael said he was 'overwhelmed' and that he 'loved the show'.

Michael is survived by his partner Claudia Sibley, mother Agnes, sister Nicky, and brother David, children, Jason, Paula and Anthony and grandchildren, Aeisha, Zac and Lachlan.

His family also included late siblings, sister Suzanne and twin brother John.
