Farewell Kiwianglo

Dear friends of Kiwianglo, it is with great sadness that our family announces the passing of Ron, our much loved husband and father. He lived his 93 years to the full, and despite a cancer diagnosis about six months ago, continued to be active until his final days. Online theological debate was an important focus of his life in recent years and gave him much satisfaction and stimulus. We know he touched many people with his thoughtful (and sometimes challenging) posts. He passed away peacefully in the early hours of Friday morning, 10 March 2023. May he rest in peace.
