Share your fondest memories of your father

GARY Brodie was proud to bring up his children in Gladstone.

Born in the town in 1941, his three children were all born in Gladstone and to his pleasure still live here.

"It's marvellous the way they've stuck to us over the years," he said.

Oldest son Peter said they have family gatherings with his sisters Julie and Kim.

One of Peter's fondest memories of his father growing up was him fixing just about anything.

"He's very mechanically minded... he still does that but the modern machinery has him a bit buggered now!" he laughed.

The family enjoyed going camping, fishing and crabbing around the Gladstone region as the three children grew up.

To celebrate our fathers in the region, The Observer would like to know what you love most about your dad.

Send us a photo of you and your dad and tell us what you love most about him to:
