Walter Nai

Our dearest Brother Walter had unfortunately passed away in October of 2015. This was devastating for all of us here at Cairns Funeral Directors. His memory will remain with us forever.

From our very first meeting with Walter our relationship grew in leaps and bounds, we went from being work associates to Walter becoming a huge member of our Cairns Funeral Directors Family.

Walter could see the dedication we had towards his people and he wanted to help. He educated us with the Indigenous Culture and Protocol of arranging a Funeral.

Walter was always there to help the family members during funeral arrangements and oversee all procedures to ensure they all comply with the Indigenous traditions. Since his passing we have continued to ensure that his legacy still lives on.
