Tribute: William Witstyn

Updated: Sep 17, 2020

We were sorry to hear of the passing of William Witstyn on 27 June 2016. William was our oldest and one of our more active members.

Born on 21 December 1916, William had a full and amazing life and at the age of 92, using his newly acquired computer skills, typed out his story "A New life". You can download (PDF) and read his story by clicking this link.

William also featured in several news articles in more recent times, links to these articles are below.

We will miss William's support and contributions.

From the Northland Age: "An old soldier remembers"

From The Bay Chronicle "Eating out to boost our cafes"
