My earliest memory of Uncle Cyril was as a hard working dairy farmer who got up early to milk the cows. We would sleep on the verandah of the house at Denman so we could see the cows come in to get milked and the truck would come to collect the milk later. Fascinating to us kids to see the big vats of milk and the cows listening to music while the milking machines went to work. Cyril was a kind and gentle man and he will be sadly missed by all his family. The end of an era.
