Colourful farewell for Jason Rich

HUNDREDS of people are expected to crowd into the Rockhampton Crematorium today to honour the life of Jason Rich.

The 21-year-old Yeppoon man was tragically killed in a car crash on his way to work last week.

The funeral at 1pm will be a colourful event with family and friends asked to dress in bright casual clothing to celebrate the life of Jason.

Tributes have continued to flow in on his Facebook page with friends uploading photographs and memories of Jason, describing him as one of the nicest blokes on the planet, a dancing buddy always ready to break it down, and someone who will be missed by everyone he touched.

Jason’s car hit a tree off the Rockhampton – Yeppoon Road. Police said heavy rain contributed to the accident. Jason turned 21 on December 1, but postponed his birthday party until after a brain operation he was due to have mid-January.

Following the funeral in Rockhampton, a wake will be held at The Capricorn Tavern in Yeppoon.
