A tribute to a 'shining Indigenous star'
TRIBUTE: NITV staff and Channel Manager Tanya Orman are deeply saddened by the death of Nunukal and Munaldjali man of the Yugambeh tribe from SE Queensland, David Page.

"He was humble and always made time for his parents, brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews, his many cousins and his many friends," Mr Enoch said at the service.

"He always remembered your name and always remained your friend, and in return they loved him back."

David's family, his brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews, reflected on the good times they had with him and the laughs that they had shared, beginning from when he was just a child.

His talents grew and flourished throughout his 55 years.

"We are heartbroken that you have left us too soon," Mr Enoch said at the service.

"There were still so many more songs to write, more stories to tell, so many more laughs to be had and as your family, we will treasure every moment, every memory of you."

"Your unconditional love, friendship, generosity of spirit and your gift of storytelling will remain in our hearts forever."
