The final journey ROBERT ANDREW COUTTS 24.03.1942 - 01.08.2008

ROBERT ANDREW COUTTS passed peacefully on the 1st August at 2:43 am at Te Omanga Hospice in the comfort of family and loved ones.

On behalf of the Coutts family: Jan, my brother John and our families i would like to extend our thanks and gratitude to all those who cared for Robert, and also to those who new him as a good friend. And thank you to Brian Ross for the lovely ceremony held for Robert.

The week that has just passed has been one of sadness, but also one of realisation that the journey we call life has its twists and turns, we reflect on the good times to crack a smile and bring ourselves some peace.
To have those wonderful memories of a remarkable man, a man who even though was given a sentence of time on his life was never bitter, never angry, who always stayed positive, a man who never worried about his own self, but of the feelings of others who supported him.

We will forever be thinking of you Dad, rest well and will see you again someday :-)

  • The Motor Neuron Disease Research Institute Australia has funded the next phase of the research -- the establishment of the Sporadic ALS Australia. More than 1400 Australians have Motor Neuron Disease. Nerve cells controlling the muscles that enable us to move, speak, breathe and swallow begin to degenerate and die.

  • MND is an incurable disease destroying the body’s cells which control movement causing progressive disability. Present treatment options for those with Motor Neurone Disease only have a modest effect in improving the patient’s quality of life.
