I really miss you Tajko. I don't know if I'll ever be able to walk in your shoes...you made such a go of living in a new country despite all the privations and totalitarian bullying in your personal history. I wish I had your resilience, now having to face a "Kangaroo Court" just like you did 30 years ago, and your beloved father Ivan in 1945. Your wise counsel and guidance is sorely needed and missed. You were a great man, and always will be one to me. Your loving son, Thomas.

Ljubo’s presence is going to be greatly missed. He was big man not only in stature but in heart. Soon after we arrived in Australia in 1995 we met him and he made us feel as though we’ve known each other all our lives. We admired him for his love, patience, wisdom, understanding and care for everyone, especially for his family. He was proud of his children and their achievements; he was full of admiration for his wife Vera, of her persistence, love, hard work… Rest in peace dear friend, we will never forget you, Mirjana, Boris & Goran Bojanovic

Dear Mrs C, Tom, Teresa and Nives, My deepest of condolences to you all. It was an honour and pleasure to have known and worked with Mr C even if it was for a short time whilst I was travelling back and forth from Wollongong and Sydney when I was part of the Zrinski Folklore Group from Wollongong back in the early 80’s. Koleda was the “Lado” amongst the Croatia Diaspora (world-wide). I thank him and Mrs C for giving me the opportunity to meet and work with Angela and Bozo Potocnik. The professionalism made me proud to be an Australian Croat and to promote the Croatian Heritage amongst our fellow Australians. It’s been over 23 years since I left Australia and moved to Croatia. I haven’t been in touch with anyone from Australia. It’s been tough at this end and even though Croatia has been independent for 20 years we still have a lot of work to do to rid us of the terrible past which still haunts us. Although it should be easy now that we have our own country we need to work more with the Croatian Diaspora (all generations) at all levels but even nowadays this is a politically sensitive issue. Back in the 80’s when Mr C opened up the communication with our “Domovina” at a cultural level it was political suicide to do so but many did not have the foresight and wisdom that he had nor the love for our Croatian Heritage as he had. Even 78 years is early for anyone to pass away and it is difficult to comfort anyone at their loss of their loved one. My parents both died at the age of 53 and they did not have the opportunity to “retire” from anything but I can relate to the sacrifices that they made as parents for their children and thank them for bringing me to Australia. Mr C touched so many “non-family” members with his thoughts and deeds. Please allow me to share some of your pain. It’s the least I can do in return for the opportunity to have known him. His life is celebrated by many and I thank you for sharing some of his time whilst he was amongst us. Eternal Rest grant unto him O Lord. And Let Perpetual Light shine upon him. May he Rest in Peace. Amen

Thank you dear Branko. Mr C would be very pleased and proud of your understanding about his determination to build up the bridge between the Croatian Diaspora and Domovina. Many unfortunately did not understand. May God bless you. Vera Crvenković

One day Nives and I decided we knew how to cook. We chose to make gnocchi. I had watched my mum making them over the years and figured I knew the recipe and technique. Yeah! Right! Nives and I spent hours cooking up an unpalatable storm. Mr C was our guest of honor at the table and sat in pride of place to consume our creative feast. It took him a looooong time to chew (masticate) just one gnocchi, but he complimented us on our talents, just adding that it was a little hard. Later that evening when I went home, I asked mama how she made gnocchi. We missed one of the essential ingredients: potatoes. Our gnocchi were made of flour, water, salt and maybe eggs. Just goes to show what a supportive, loving human being he was. And his sense if humour was beyond compare. He lived life fully. It's been an honour to know and love him.

Tajko was a dancer extraordinare: proud, refined and elegant. When I was writing my thesis on Croatian folk dance several years ago, I relished our discussions about the finer technical aspects of the steps and formations from the different regions of Croatia. At the age of 74 he could still do a mean 'Bunjevacko Kolo' to highlight what we were talking about. These were precious moments when I'd feel a real connection to my heritage through something he loved. I love you Tajko!

We met many years ago, in May 1969, in Koleda. You and your wife took care of me when I first arrived in Australia. I will always remember your generosity and hospitality and you will always be in my heart and memory. You and your wife mean more to me than my own parents ever did. Thank you for everything!

I was born in Germany (I'm not putting the year in for Internet security reasons) and emigrated to Australia with my parents Ljubo and Vera one year later. We almost didn't make it - our Super Constellation Qantas plane experienced engine failure and we had to spend 24 hours in Karachi, Pakistan. The flight took an extra day - four days from Frankfurt to Sydney. While in Germany, we lived in a refugee camp, and Ljubo worked very hard to scrape some money together.

I'll be posting a number of tributes to my dad, representing how I experienced his many qualities. First of all, I'll say a few things about his "mateship". We know this is an Australian idiom that describes a way of life; Ljubo demonstrated the universality of this construct. His core values of inclusiveness, equality, loyalty, and friendship were there for all to see. I remember how dad loved his friends, and the great times they had together. The reciprocity between these guys was amazing - they loved getting together on weekends to work on their homes, concurrently putting their different skills to use; they laughed, enjoyed good food and refreshments, and did some amazing things on their homes. They all loved their new lives, and devoted themselves to establishing us - their children, in our new homeland, this great country Australia. Ljubo also worked very hard along with these people to ensure our Croatian heritage was nurtured and sustained through successive generations. Vale, Tajko.

This is the third time I've tried to post on this site. Hopefully it works. A suggestion to other posters so you don't lose your assiduously extracted words: write the tribute in Word first, then just copy/paste it here. If it's lost, at least you still have a saved copy in Word, and can use it again.

My first memory of Ljubo, and indeed of Australia, is a simple one: disembarking the Boeing 707 on the open tarmac at the age of eight and seeing Ljubo and his son Tommy (Tom), waving to us from the open rooftop platform at Sydney Airport (when such things existed). He held two small stuffed koala bear dolls in his hands, a humble welcome to our new country. In spite of moving to Melbourne shortly after, our friendship with Ljubo, Vera and all the Crvenkovic children grew and blossomed over the years. In fact, friendship isn't the right word; Ljubo and Vera were family to us, replacing aunts and uncles left behind in Croatia. We couldn't have asked for a better surrogate family. Ljubo was the most generous and fun-loving 'adult' I knew as a child. He was different to anyone I had ever met and I loved his company immensely. I loved his simple BBQs and the way people were always welcomed into his home with no questions asked. I loved the way he would sneak $20 bills to my sister and me every time he came to Melbourne, when he thought my mother wasn't looking - a tradition that continued with my children. I love the way he and his friends drank a bottle of Tom's expensive Grange Hermitage one night without ever realising what they were drinking. Thank you Ljubo for glorious and beautiful memories from my childhood - many of them filled with you. With love and gratitude, Suzanna, Boris, Daniel and Oliver.

This is the first of many posts about my dad. Each will cover a different impression about him. This post is devoted to Ljubo's "mateship", that was a manifestation of his core personal values of equality, loyalty, and friendship. Although Ljubo wasn't born in Australia, he brought with him this great quality. I remember the wonderful times he had with his mates in Australia - particularly the reciprocity between them. The numerous house renovations they all shared, using their unique skills concurrently were legendary - they worked so hard on weekends, but what fun they had! The jokes, laughs, good food and liquid refreshments did not detract from the perfectionistic quality of their work. They loved it. Instead of weekend sports, these guys enjoyed each other by working together. They remind me of the early pioneers in Australia - these blokes were the new pioneers, coming from Europe and enriching this place. I don't want to name names, in case I left someone out; but to all of you, my dad's mates, I remember, and thank you all for being such good friends to him throughout. Vale my dear father.

After reading everyone’s tributes I had a memory of me calling “MY GODFATHER” jokingly “THE DON”. Big John was truly “THE GODFATHER” to so many of us . Giving in any way he could. He touched so many lives with his crazy humour, his kindness, his willingness to listen . His unbelievable generosity too anyone who was struggling, even when he was struggling himself. I know he will not only be remembered and missed by all his family and friends but by all the lucky people who let him into their homes for him to perform his magic paintwork. I was honoured to have Tajko as my godfather, as I lost my father at 5 yrs of age Tajko was the best godfather anyone could ask for. My Tata was not only one of Ljubos’ best mates he also shared the same birthdate as him, one which they celebrated together. I felt I got to know my father through him which was comforting to me , knowing my father must have been a very special man if he was anything like Stari. More than anything Marley & I wish we could be in Sydney to say “GOODBYE DEDA” to the ”GREATEST MAN” We’ve ever known. If we could be there tomorrow I would make a toast to the man who taught me how to give a toast, he was also the only man who was brave enough to call me “Veijko Dupe” and get away with it. So to the great man with more names than John Wayne ,”THANKYOU” for everything!!!! To Ljubo, Tata ,Taiko, Stari, Deda, Mr C, and Big John Zivjeli RIP Diana & Marley XXX

From the first moment I met Ljubo and Vera they took me in as part of their family. The incredible love and kindness you showed both Diana and I especially through some of the hardest times in our lives is something we will always remember. I feel so priviliged and lucky to have had such a beautiful and loving person in our lives. Words will never express how much of a wonderful impact you've had on my family and I. I will always remember you my dear friend. May you rest in peace with god Love Rosa Price and Family

I grew up knowing this fantastic family, and Ljubo was someone who I always looked forward to seeing again. A gentle, friendly, happy and loving man - I've not met anyone else like to date. He always had time for me as a kid, regardless of what was going on, and was instrumental in my parents getting together - so I owe him more than I can put words to. I am both proud and incredibly blessed to have had this man as my godfather. I will miss him dearly.

I was a teenager when I came to Australia. Being painfully shy, it was hard for me to make new friends. The language barrier made it even harder. Then I heard about Koleda having auditions for new members, the year was 1970. I went along, that's when I first met Mr C. He was like a father figure to us all, strict but fair, honest, kind, always happy to share a joke, help out or give you advice. Ljubo, it's so sad to say goodbye, we'll miss you very much. May You Rest in Peace. "Ljubav nas veze i spaja" Nikad vas necemo zaboraviti.

We met long ago, in May 1969, in Koleda. You and your wife took care of me when I first arrived in Australia. You both have always been generous towards everyone and the greatest rolemodels! You and your wife mean more to me than my own parents ever did. You will always be in my heart and memory. I am so happy that I and my husband had the opportunity to visit you last year. The greatest thanks to your hospitality! I miss you a lot!

I met you long ago, springtime in May 1969, in Koleda. I was new in Australia and you and Verica took great care of me. Through you I have met many other nice people in Koleda. You both have always been generous to everyone and the greatest rolemodels. You and your wife mean more to me than my own parents ever did. I am so happy that I and my husband had the opportunity to visit you last spring. You will always be in my heart and memory. I miss you a lot!
