Locals are mourning the loss of well-known surfer and musician Brian Burdett and his two daughters Skye and Kayla in a car accident at Braidwood on Friday afternoon.
The accident took place on the Kings Highway, near Braidwood, where the family had been living.
Brian had previously lived at Lennox Head and held the Thursday night open jam nights at Lennox pub. He was held in high regard by local musicians.
Two more people have died in a separate accident within a close radius of the crash site in a horror three days.
My best friend…the person I considered no. 1 out of anyone I have met….has graced us with his love and left a legacy of happiness. RIP Birdy xx I love you xx
RIP Brian,Skye and Kayla……….we are so very ,very sad to hear of this terrible tragedy. We only met Brian for a couple of days when he visited us in England in the 80’s and remember a cheerful, smiley, surfer lad, one of our 4 Ozzie cousins, visiting his late Dad’s family in the U.K. with his wife and Tim.
Our deepest sympathy goes to all of the families bereaved and we are thinking of you at this time.
The English Burdett cousins….Linda, Sheena, Andrew and Rachel and their families xxxx
