Whanau spent the night with him at his home, and on Sunday 6 June took him back to his Marae, Hinerupe in Te Araroa. His final service was held on Wednesday 8 June. We laid him to rest with his grand- parents and whanau in St Stephen's Church- yard, Te Araroa. Now at eternal rest. Listen to the music and you will hear him, embrace a fond memory, and you will feel him, seek a cheeky grin, and you will see him. Arohanui, Katerina and family.
