Dave Hereora RIP

I was sad to hear of Dave Hereora’s death – another Maori man like Parekura who has died too young. Dave was a good man, a gentle man, and a strong man. He knew where he came from, he knew what he stood for, and all those he worked for knew he had their interests truly at heart. He wasn’t loud, but he was effective, particularly in pulling the sting from useless confrontation and getting people to work together. He was brave and  held the line in some difficult confrontations. Arohanui to Faith and the whanau.

    Well said Mike Smith 100% agree with you and Kiwiri. Dave was a good man and those are hard to find. RIP Dave and love and condolences to his family.

    Yes – Dave Hereora was a good person, quiet, hard worker. Owen and my sympathy to Faith and whanau.

    Thanks Dave.
    As Mike has indicated, the quiet achiever who understands the vital importance of walking a mile in another’s shoes, makes the lasting difference.

    Didnt know much about the guy but that is probably how he wanted it.

    In the background toiling away to make a difference to people’s lives, not expecting any glory or fanfare.

    RIP Dave

    I met him a few times and had a few dealings with him. He was an utterly decent human being and someone who had put his life into helping other members of his community. Politics needs more people like Dave, many more.

    Met Dave only once. As you say, a good, solid man.

    Hi all, thankyou so much for your kind words about my father. The man you all knew outside was definitely the same man at home. We miss my dad and hope that one day as his children, we could make the same differences my dad did in his time.
