GARDINER, Michael Keirin (MKG)

Born 22/02/1946 and died peacefully on Sunday, 02/01/2022 after his battle with cancer.

02/01/2022 we lost the strongest, gentle and loving man.  A father, a son, a brother, a husband, a grandpa, a friend, a teacher, a coach, a true role model. Rest easy now Dad, your fight is over and you can now be with Mum. You are loved, you will be missed and you will be forever remembered.

On Saturday 8th January 2022, at 2.00pm, we welcome all friends and family to join us in celebrating and farewelling Mike and Judie at St Patrick’s Church Napier. Judie passed away on 22nd August  2021, just 5 months before her beloved husband. They can finally lay to rest together in peace.

Vaccination passports will need to be shown on arrival. After the service there will be a short and simple gathering at the church hall for a cuppa tea.

For those that wish to join us, we will be gathering at The Speight’s Ale House from 4pm where Dad has asked that we all have a whiskey on him and share stories and laughter and remember the good times.
