Trevor Llewellyn Heke
It is with great sadness that I report the death of my young brother Trevor on the 23rd Septemeber 2003 in Hastings New Zealand. Affectionately known as "Pixie". Trevor had Kidney failure when he was 18 years old and had several Renal Transplants as well as numerous stints on Dialysis.
During his years you would be hard pressed to hear him complain about his illness. He faced death many times. He saw many milestones, firstly the 21st of Trevyna then Kyle. The wedding of Trevyna. Their 25th Wedding Anniversary the birth of their first moko. So Trevor had 36 years "extra" life. He died in Hastings with his loving wife Christine and his devoted sister Val and our brother in law Murray and all their family.
He lay in state at his home in Mangere Bridge then to a service at St James Church, Mangere Bridge. Trevor was then taken to Parahaki Marae where he lay in state. He was buried with his Tupuna at Mangakahia. God Bless you Trevor. To Christine and family we offer our heartfelt sympathy
