Death Notice

Allan John (Squid):
Passed peacefully at Lower Hutt Hospital on Thursday morning, 2 September 2021. Beloved son of Kitty and Alex. Cherished brother of Margaret, June and Stephen. Loved uncle and great-uncle of all his nieces and nephews.
"You gave no one a last farewell nor ever said good-bye. You were gone before we knew it, and only you know why. A million times we will miss you. A million times we will cry."
Loved Father of Deborah, Warren, Donna and Jason.
"A limb has fallen from our family tree."
Our hearts are broken as we remember the Dad we knew: Handsome, funny, strong, larger than life. Even though we are far away, we knew he loved us fiercely, as we did him. So sorry that we could not say goodbye. Til we meet again.
Granddad of Cameron, Holly, Trent and Kane.
'You never failed to make us smile, Granddad. Thank you for taking the time to visit and get to know us. Now, as we grow older, we see you in each of us. you will not be forgotten'
From Dawn Cooper's whanau.
Me pehea rã te mauru ai a roto i tõ korenga. He rangi paki ka marumarutia e te kapua pouri, e kapua hopo e mokemoke. Tukua au kia tangi mõu, kia horo ai te rangi, kia waipuketia ai te whenua. Ko koe rã kua whetürangitia! Tirama mai i te uma o te põ, ko au ka piri ki te poho o te ata ka manako nei i tã tãua tütakinga rua. Haere rã e te Pãpã, e te koroua, e te hoa, e te ipo. Okioki atu, e moe i tõ moenga roa. Loved and adored partner of Dawn Cooper for 25 years. Best stepdad, koro and great koro to
Te Kauru, Tipene, Taumutu, Taine, Peti-Tei, Ta'ani, Taine, Tiwana and Manaia. Moe mai rã Koro Squid, e kore rawa te aroha e mimiti mõu.
A memorial service for Squid will take place at a later date.
