Hundreds have gathered in Sydney's west for the funeral of former NRL star Chad Robinson.
Past and present Parramatta Eels and Sydney Roosters greats were among mourners at Parramatta Marist High for the service on Tuesday morning.
Robinson's body was found inside the wreckage of a car at Kenthurst on December 22, almost a month after he went missing from his Kellyville home about 13km away.
His teenage children, Kiara and Cooper, penned a "thank you" letter to their dad, describing him as their closest companion.
"Words cannot express how broken-hearted we are that you were taken so early from us but we know you are at peace and resting easy now," the pair wrote in a letter printed in the order of service.
"Until we see you again, know that we adore you, Daddy. Forever loving you."
The former Parramatta and Sydney Roosters forward played 159 NRL matches between 2000 and 2008.
