Passed on Saturday March 16, 2019 at Christchurch Hospital, around 2:25 am after suffering a major stroke on Wednesday evening. He passed in the arms of his beautiful, dedicated wife, Brenda, his loyal son, Sullivan-John and his kind daughter, Jazzlyn. A man with so much mana will be missed by so many, but a man with so much mana does not just fade away quietly. He will be present in Brenda’s compassionate and caring nature, Sulli’s integrity and honour and Jazz’s morality and life principles. A juxtaposition of a man; great but aware of the smallest creatures; broke but deep pocketed and generous; proud but humble and unassuming. A man of made of steel and velvet. Adored by many, loved by many, missed by many, forgotten by no one.
