  1. My big brother I remember when you were young, you were fit, fast, agile and strong. You liked to drink, fight and chase the girls but most of all you liked to hunt the wild pig and deer back home here in New Zealand. I remember one time hunting with you up the Mangamako and our dogs bailed up a stag in the stream. You went charging in and leaped onto the stags back and held onto its antlers. The next second the deer tears off down stream with you on its back and you yelling to me to hurry and bring my knife. I didn’t know if I was laughing or if I was in shock in witnessing something you only see in the movies. Damn that was funny.
    There were many other fun times and events that has passed that you and I shared but when I visited you in Mildura 2022 I could not believe that the sickness had grabbed you my big big brother and now it has stolen you. Travel well my brother, give our love to the rest of the whanau when you see them.

  2. E te Rangatira, E te tuakana
    Takoto mai takoto mai
    Takoto mai i runga i te atamira o te mate
    Ka nui te pouri
    Ka nui te maemae
    Ka nui te tangi
    Nau te karanga, nau te powhiri,nau te whakahuihui o te tangata
    Haere i runga i te tai o te ata, ka haere mai matou i runga i te tai o te ahiahi.

    No reira e te tuakana
    Haere,haere,haere atu ra.

    Kia ora koutou katoa, my name is Malcolm White, Stephen youngest brother the second oldest sibling in our whanau……
    When Stephen was growing up in his early years in life back in the 60’s, he loved to play rugby and he especially loved to go pig hunting. Our dad once told me that he was a good pig hunter. Tau ke.
    The early 70’s saw him head off to the big smoke of Wellington to begin his apprenticeship in carpentry. He carried on in that trade until 1990, when he decided to head across the ditch and join the rest of the kiwi’s working in the mines,
    that was physically the last time i saw my brother.
    Kua ngaro atu i te po.

    I would like to take this opportunity to thankyou all for your kind sympathy and condolences to our whanau.

    Nga mihi nui ki a koutou katoa.

    Malcolm White April 23, 2024
