Tena Koe Te Whanau

This panui is to inform the Family, Friends and Whanau of the Late: GAVIN WILLIAM KING, formerly of St John Street, Opotiki, that he passed away on Thursday 15th January 2004 in Sydney. Gavin is the son of William King and Lilian Moetu King (nee Hudson)and one of 10 children.

GAVIN was a loving husband to Kim Rosetta King (nee Fraser) of Christchurch, and father of James (9yrs) and Kieran (4yrs). He will be sadly missed by all of his family and by those who knew and loved him.

The Late: GAVIN WILLIAM KING will lay-in-state at his home in Cherrybrook, Sydney, until Tuesday 20 January 2004. The funeral service will be held at the Presbyterian Church, Mary Street, Beecroft, NSW at 10:30am Tuesday 20th Janaury 2004 afterwhich the cortege will travel to Catherine Hill Bay Cemetery on the Central Coast of NSW for his internment.

On behalf of our Whanau at Mitacare Funeral Services in Sydney, I extend and express our Aroha to Kim and the children, and to all the Whanau in Sydney and back home in Aotearoa or where ever you might be in the world, at this sad time.

It has been an honour and priviledge to have known and served GAVIN and his Whanau. May the LORD bless and comfort you all as you Tangi his farewell.

Aroha nui
Ka Kite ano
