War­ren re­mem­bered as gen­tle, kind and help­ful to all

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

WAR­REN Petty will al­ways be re­mem­bered as gen­tle and lov­ing by his dad De­nis Petty and his older sis­ter Shar­lene An­der­son.

The 45-year-old plumber, who had been liv­ing in Wood­wark, was trag­i­cally killed in a sin­gle-ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dent at the in­ter­sec­tion of Shute Har­bour Rd and St Mar­tins Lane last Fri­day.

Shar­lene said War­ren had moved to the Whit­sun­days about 17 years ago and was well known and re­spected in his trade.

“He would do any­thing for anybody and give any­one the time of day,” she said.

“He was not a ma­te­ri­al­is­tic per­son at all and that’s why he loved Air­lie. He loved the beach, he loved his dog Diego and he loved his work.

“He was al­ways happy and very quirky – very dif­fer­ent – but that was him.”

War­ren’s cre­ma­tion will take place in Bris­bane, with Shar­lene de­scrib­ing it as him “com­ing home”.

“He lost his mum last year so he’s go­ing home to her,” she said.

A me­mo­rial ser­vice will be held in Air­lie Beach at a later date, with all who knew “Wazza”, as he was af­fec­tion­ately nick­named, in­vited to at­tend.

War­ren leaves be­hind his dad De­nis, sis­ter and brother-in-law Shar­lene and Mark An­der­son, and beloved niece and nephew Tay­lah and Corey An­der­son.

He is also sorely missed by his aunts, un­cles, cousins and friends.
