Tributes from across the region have flown in for 17-year-old Dubbo boy Jake Michael Fardell, who tragically lost his life in a single vehicle crash near Trangie earlier this month. The tributes poured onto Jake’s Facebook page from family members and friends devastated by his loss. Other people expressed their sympathies through a Daily Liberal tribute page. The comments included:
“My deepest sympathy to the families of Jake and to all the emergency services who tried to save him,” Kristi, Peak Hill.
“Jake is one of a kind and such a good kid. Sending all my love and support to his family! 17 is way to young and he didn't deserve this,” Emerson Drady, Dubbo
“Sending lots of love, prayers and strength to Jake's family and friends,” – Hilly, from Trangie.
“Through the years I have taught many kids, each and every one ending up with a place in my heart. There are a few kids that end up with a larger spot than others. Jake, you were one of those kids. You were always smiling, joking around, serious when needed, and had a big heart. You flaunted the rules, fell on you feet, and even when I had to remind you of the rules, you still managed to make me chuckle. You are going to be missed by more people then you realise. Spread your wings and fly high young man. You may be gone but you will never be forgotten and will always remain in that place in my heart. It was an honour to teach you,” Sue Williams, Narromine.
Messages of condolences were even left by people who didn’t know the teenager.
“I didn't know Jake. But I am feeling for his family and friends. I lost a sister to a car accident.. My thoughts are with you all,” Pattie Owen, Narromine.
“I don't know Jake, but for the family of Jake’s I am really sorry for your lost,” Melanie, Narromine.
