Scotland Island - Western Shores - Mackeral Beach



Graham (Boges) Botham


It is with much sadness that we report the passing of Graham Botham, who died on 14 March 2007, peacefully in Mona Vale Hospital with Judy at his side.

Graham grew up in McCarrs Creek and lived on the Island from 1973 until earlier this year when he & Judy decided to make a move to Tasmania.

For over 25 years Graham was a member of the Water Police and then, in conjunction with his nephew Mike Cardiff, built the Laurel Mae and established a lighterage service on Pittwater. In recent years he was having a shot at "retirement" but his love of hard physical work meant that he was never sitting down for very long.

Graham was a much-loved Pittwater "character" who would always lend a helping hand.

He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.

Graham is survived by Judy and his children, Mitchell, Gayle & Ashley.

His funeral will be held at 3pm on Monday 19 March at Pittwater Uniting Church, Jubilee Avenue, Warriewood.

Graham's family would like to invite all his friends to join them at the Royal Motor Yacht Club at the conclusion of the service.
