Kaumoana, Erueti Taipouri (aka Eddie, Iti, Boy)
"kua hinga te totara i te wao nui a Tane"
On 23 May 2017, an inspiration to some and a great man to others passed away.
At the age of 77, he went peacefully in his home, surrounded by his whanau.
He is a loved husband, dad, and toto to his many moko's.

Ma te matamata arero koe e ora ai.
He kura tangihia, he maimai aroha moou a pa, e koro, e te tau.
