Kua hinga a matua Chum i te ata nei. We were saddened to read the following message from matua Chum's daughter Lyn Reid this morning:
"My Dad departed this earth this morning, he will be at home 812 Kohumaru Road this afternoon, service at Eastern Rugby Clubrooms 10 a.m. tomorrow, followed by private burial.
Contact phone 09 4060027"
E Chum, after a long and fruitful life, you have gone to be with your dear wife Glynnis and all your loved ones on the other side. Our deepest condolences to your whanau who cared for you so long and so well. Ka aroha ki a koutou Pat, Ellen, Lyn and Sam me to koutou tamariki mokopuna hoki. Also to whaea Ima Reid and whanau.
Moe mai ra e te Matua Chum ki runga i te ringaringa o te Atua.
