Ki te whānau o John; Arohanui.
I was honoured to have met John in my role as a ranger with DOC in Dunedin. Every moment I spent with him I felt an overwhelming presence of great mana, integrity, vision and patience. My time with him was short, and, owing to boundaries of office I do not believe I was of much service. And yet I feel privileged to have had that time. I cannot start to imagine your sense of loss with his passing. His memory will sit with me whenever I am on the coast at Purakaunui.

Haere rā John.

nā, Jim Fyfe
