Family man who had a good life

THE man who cleaned up on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? and bought Don Bradman's baggy green cap will be remembered today.

Tim Serisier, from Lowanna, died from a heart attack on Saturday night. He was 49.

In 2003 he won $250,000 on the TV game show and later paid $425,000 for Sir Don's famous cap.

Mr Serisier was well known for his keen interest in the racing industry and he once served on the Coffs Harbour Racing Club Board.

His close friend, local horse trainer Brett Bellamy, remembers the good times they shared.

“He was certainly different. He had a very warped sense of humour at times,” Mr Bellamy said.

“I've been away with him to race meetings numerous times and it was always fun.”

Mr Serisier bred and owned classy sprinter Chocolate Starfish and entrusted her to the Bellamy stable. Mr Serisier is survived by his wife, Jane, and their children, Annie and Emma. His funeral will be held at Grafton's Christ Church Cathedral at 2pm.
