Alan Dare, a 58-year-old from Queensland, was a kind and humble individual who always showed up.
He was shot dead along with the two officers who died at Wieambilla on December 12.
After hearing gunshots, he went to his neighbors’ home to check on their safety.
He was then shot and left for dead by his neighbors, who were identified as Nathaniel, Stacey, and Gareth Train.
Hundreds of people showed up to pay their respects to Dare on Friday as his coffin was carried through his hometown of Ipswich.
He was accompanied by a procession of his prized car, an XC Ford Falcon Cobras.
A friend of Dare’s who was at the funeral said that he received three cheers from the crowd as his coffin was carried into the chapel.
His children, who were emotional during the service, struggled to find words to describe their father’s sudden death.
Dare’s coffin was brought to the chapel, where a friend shouted three cheers for him as he was being carried into the outdoor chapel.
His children, namely, his son-in-law, his daughter, and his brother, struggled to find words to explain their father’s sudden demise.
As his daughter, Ms Richards, sobbed, she said she loved him and that she would always look after his mother.
The community of Wieambilla and Tara is still reeling from the sudden loss of their neighbor and friend.
A fundraising campaign for Dare was established on a website called Gofundme.com, where people could contribute to his family’s expenses.
