  • The most honourable, hard working and committed soldier and family man who gave 21 years to the New Zealand Army. He was a lovely daddy and loyal friend to all his mates. The house is very quiet now without the drinks and the laughs. Thank you so much dad for your sacrifice to this country and protecting our free land from war and strife. He is sorely missed every day and night but all the memories are held very tight in our hearts. Till we meet again little Lenny xx
