Mourners honour lovable larrikin
TRIBUTES flowed and memories were shared yesterday as Tannum Sands said its final goodbye to the lovable larrikin Hayden Currie.
Family members and friends gathered at the Boyne Tannum Crematorium on Saturday morning to remember the 17-year-old.
Hayden's life was tragically cut short on Australia Day this year when he was struck and killed by a four-wheel drive in Wurdong Heights while walking home from a party.
A memorial service was held in Hayden's honour with eulogies from his mum, dad, sisters and friends.
A photo slideshow was also played at Hayden's funeral.
Hayden's father Darren gave a loving eulogy about his late son, describing him as a strong "young spirited lad".
