Budd, John Roger:

Died peacefully in Palmerston North Hospital at 6pm on the 2nd April 2020 aged 84. Beloved husband of Haumihi (Minnie) Brown (deceased), and much-loved father of Jean, Michael (deceased), Claudia, Terry ,Raymond (deceased) and Sofia. A gentleman who was the warm heart of his large and vibrant family. We extend a special thank you to the bevy of wonderful caregivers who visited him daily, providing him with care and friendship laced with a good dollop of humour within his large, busy family home. We also would like to thank ACC, especially dads case manager Peter Kennedy, for all their efforts on Dads behalf’.  We also acknowledge St Johns Ambulance for all their efforts on behalf of my dad over the last 5 years of his life. Finally, a big thank you for the compassionate efforts made by the staff of ward 29, and R.J Cotton to ensure Dad was cremated within a day, so he wasn’t left alone for too long. A private cremation was held at 1.30 pm on the 3rd of April, 2020. No one was allowed to attend and a memorial service will be held at an unveiling later in the year. Dad you leave us with many lovely memories, and an example of how to be available to those you love. We will miss you and are grateful for all that you shared with us. Messages to the Budd family, c/0 PO Box 5191, Palmerston North 4441, or may be left at
