(RUSSELL FRANCIS KAWANA)
Born in NZ, Palmerston North, 16th February 1940. Sadly passed away on Monday 13th September 2021. If you asked 100 people who Devo was, they would all give you a different story.
A super hero, the most inspiring man in the world, a tough rugby league player and coach who inspired many to be the better version of themselves. To us he was the backbone of our family. The boss, the rangatira, the leader, our chief.
Our lives will never be the same. You will always be in our hearts and minds forever. Love always,
Nancy, Caryll, Melinda and family.
We would love if you could all join us for his Funeral at Karrakatta Cemetery on Friday 24th September at 12.30pm.
