Tribute to Devin Twigg

20.09.1992 – 02.05.2011

Devin Kennedy Twigg was a son, a brother, a friend and a great man. No words can describe the sense of loss we shared on that fateful day when he was taken.

A smile that could light the darkest of rooms, a heart as pure as any rare diamond, and the true meaning of “living life to the fullest”.  For all those that had the privilege of knowing him knew him for his genuine nature and the ability for him to take life with such strength and grace when things went wrong. He touched the lives and hearts of so many people in the short 18 years of his life.

To his friends and in particular to his Kearsney band of brothers, his passing is an incredible loss to all who loved him. Dev was the kind of person whom you could never speak badly about. Always in a cheerful mood and most welcoming whenever you went to his house.  May the countless memories of our beloved Twiggy bring tears of joy and not sadness and pain for he is in a place far better than this life.

Devin may be gone but he will never be forgotten. The universe may have lost a great person but it has gained an angel.

Missed and loved forever by his family and friends,

Lawrence, Jenni and Sydney Twigg and Granny Felicity Hansen

With thanks to ‘Salad’ Salathiso Siwisa (Class of 2010) for his contribution to this tribute.

Kearsney Remembrance Garden

Visit the Kearsney Remembrance Garden where a plaque has been erected in Devin’s memory.

This fund has been established by the Kearsney Foundation at the request of the Twigg family:

  • All donations to this fund are tax deductible in the year the gift is received;
  • All donations are invested by the Trustees of the Kearsney Development Fund in conjunction with the Fund’s appointed investment managers;
  • An endowed gift is commemorated in the history of the school and will provide a sustainable and ongoing fund as a source of income to support Kearsney College. Consider that in 50 or 100 years, the “Class of 2010 Fund” will continue to realise the dreams of a boy seeking a world class education at Kearsney.
  • During the initial stages of building up an endowment, there may well be insufficient income earned to allocate a meaningful award to a deserving student or project.  In this case the trustees will aggregate the annual income with the income earned on similar endowments such that, in aggregate, a meaningful award can be made.

You are invited to support the Class of 2010 Fund

The Class of 2010 Memorial Fund aims to provide boys with a talent the opportunity to experience the camaraderie, world class education and Kearsney College life.
