  • A quiet natured and patient Grandad who gave us gave us good fishing tips and showed us original ways to do things. We had fabulous holidays at his and Nana's house in Hokitika. Grandad also had the best vegie garden I have ever seen. Now I have a son who would be his great Grandson and he was born on ANZAC day 2019!
