On Saturday, April 6, 2019, we lost an amazing guy and a piece of our hearts will forever be broken.
Jon was born in a small country hospital in Tully, QLD, Australia on February 1, 1973; to Roy Tate and Barbara Gunn of Georgetown. The Gunn Family moved to Australia in 1972.

Jon was an avid sports fan. He developed a strong passion for soccer at an early age while living in Australia. He was also a lifelong hunting enthusiast. Jon’s first and strongest passions were his faith and his love and devotion to his family and friends.

My fondest childhood memories are the years spent with the Gunn family, particularly Jon and Jill. Jon was a handsome young man who was always so thoughtful and caring of others. Memories of the fun times at Kirrama, Jon’s love to play continual games of soccer and the movie night at Bluff Road watching ‘Cujo’ . I am absolutely devastated to learn of Jon’s passing. The world has lost an amazing guy who I was privileged to know during our young years. My sincere condolences to Tate, Barbara, Stacy and Jill and the extended family at this very sad time. Precious memories of Jon will remain in my heart forever. Much love to you all from Australia........... Tamara.
