Sad news was received that past Tawa Rotarian, Gordon Mygind passed away on 13 July at Kenepuru Hospital. He was very restful and passed away peacefully. Following Gordon's wishes, a funeral service was held at the Tawa RSA at 11 AM on Tuesday 18 July 2017.
Although not active in the club in recent times and last year retired from Rotary due to health reasons, Gordon was a much admired member. On his retirement, members stood in tribute to acknowledge Gordon and his 20+ years with Rotary. As he shared his experience and referenced his learning Italian, he bid us arrivederci - goodbye until we meet again.
Gordon will be sadly missed for his humour, loyalty, and the passion he had for his WW2 reminiscences and of fallen comrades.
