Vale John Winders - Gone too soon

For those of you who have not seen this on Facebook

A sensational celebration of John's life.

Tributes from the Family at the Service followed by reminiscing by friends at the wake.

A huge turnout facilitating the use of the atrium next door by video link.

The Maori funeral Haka at the end of the service was especially memorable and sent John off in the way he would have appreciated.

The stories at the wake highlighted John's empathy with people from all walks of life. His love of good food and wine. His mate ship with his friends and colleagues. His great career at ANZ and as he called it the Piggy Bank.

He will be sorely missed by everyone he met.

Vale John a Legend to us all

Check out the music Meatloaf, Deep Purple, Guns N' Roses that sums up John to a tee.

Sadly we heard today that John Winders has passed away after a 7 month battle with melanoma. He was one of the best guys around and will be missed by his many friends and colleagues. Our deepest condolences to Julia, Roger, Dewi, Keith and their families.
