John Tombleson - Life Member NZSDTA

TOMBLESON, John. Passed away peacefully on the 14th June 2022, aged 99 1/2 years.

Our mighty macrocarpa has fallen. From hilltop to the winning pen, and every muster in between. Now enjoying a well- earnt cup o'tea with his cherished wife, the late Alice. Loved father of Keryn, Ian and Rodney. Adored grandad and great-grandad to many. A true Stockman to all.

John is laying at 510 Nelson Road until his funeral service at 11am, Saturday 18th June, which will be held at the Waimata Valley Hall, followed by a cuppa and catchup before burial at the Taruheru Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to either the Alzheimers Society or Rural Support.

The NZSDTA wish to acknowledge the passing of John, one of our treasured and long standing Life Members and express our sincerest condolences to John's family, friends and fellow dog triallists.
