It is with the heaviest of hearts that we create this page for such a beautiful friend, brother and son. Eddie Mather’s unexpected, and tragic passing has devastated anyone whose lives he touched. His undeniably positive energy, beaming smile and thirst for life will be forever missed by those who had the pleasure of knowing him.

As if this loss could be any more difficult on the people closest to Eddie, his family now need to liaise with funeral coordinators across two countries to try and bring Eddie home to Australia. We’re asking for everyone’s help to donate anything they can, to help ease the financial burden on his family in order to bring Eddie home.

Thank you to everyone who has donated at this stage. We appreciate it so much, as do the Mather family. As there's clearly a wide audience who have been touched by Eddie and want to help his family, we'll keep pushing the target until we know for certain all expenses are covered.

When creating this page, we knew there would be a strong desire to help Eddie’s family through this difficult time, but to see this generosity and love from all corners of the globe, and an array of people from close friends and family to strangers has been absolutely overwhelming. We cannot thank you all enough for your beautiful words and memories, and of course your contributions.

The Mather Family have expressed their utmost appreciation and thanks for all of your support. Your generous donations will allow the Mather Family to honour Eddie with three Celebrations of Life, in the three places closest to Eddie’s heart. The first service takes place on Thursday, 29th October at 10:00am, PST in Victoria, BC (4:00am, 30th October AEDT).

Due to current gathering restrictions, this service is limited to only 10 attendees, and will be live-streamed for those who cannot attend in person. Guests can also register for access to view the recorded session at a later time.

Additional services will be planned for both Melbourne and Daintree, to allow Ed’s closest family and friends in Australia to also take part in a celebration of his life.

We will share updates on these services as soon as details become available.
