Kerry Packer, father of James Packer was an Australian media tycoon. Kerry Packer built the Packer empire and had a lasting influence on his son James Packer.

In some of the interviews James Packers shared his emotional memories with his father during his last days.

My father was an amazing man. No person is perfect and no father-son relationship is perfect.

He wanted me to live my life my way and never think about what he would have done or what he would have wanted to do.

He said he loved me, he said he was proud of me. Twenty-four hours later his doctor rang and said, ‘Get on a plane, he’s only got 24 hours to live’. Dad knew and he didn’t tell me (about his health issues).

I always got a bit jumpy when dad called, ’cause I didn’t know if it was going to be a good call or a bad call.

My dad was a larger-than-life character and I’m not going to say every minute or every hour we spent together was a highlight.

He had a good temper. He was best in class that I’ve come across in temper.

When he wanted to be, he could be terrifying.

These are the great memories and it looks the same for every father and son relationship.
