MICHAEL, Ieuan Wynne.
Passed away peacefully at home on August 2, 2013.
Much loved husband of Rosalie, and loved and respected by her children and their families. Dearly loved by his family in his home country of Wales and extended family in the UK.
A celebration of Ieuan’s life was held in the Dunstall Memorial Chapel, Edwardes Street, Napier on Friday, August 9, followed by interment at Western Hills Lawn Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers a donation in Ieuan’s memory to Cranford Hospice would be appreciated and can be left via www.cranfordhospice.org.nz All messages to the Michael Family, c/- PO Box 1055, Napier 4140.
It was with shock and sadness that I learned of Ieuan's passing, almost 3 months after he died. Ieuan (Ian) was perhaps the single most influential male in my life through my teenage years as he took on the role as stepfather. I will always be indebted to him for his support through my high school years and encouragement as I embarked on my military career. I last saw Ian a couple of years ago when I dropped in and surprised him. Rosalie, Im so sorry that I haven’t met you. I would like to. Ian was a very special, caring and good man and will be dearly missed.
My thoughts go out to Rosalie, his children, friends and family both near and far.
With much love, Peter and Sharron (Hastings, NZ)
Although it has been a while since I spoke to Ieuan he was never far from my thoughts. I was lucky to have been quite a big part of his life and thankful for all he did for me. He was a wonderful step-dad to me and was always there when I needed him. You were a genuine, wonderful, kind and caring man with a heart of gold. My thoughts are with you Rosalie and families.
Although it has been many years since I saw Great Uncle Ieaun, I still have fond memories of him from my childhood. My thoughts go out to Rosalie and all of his family and friends at this sad time.

My communications with (Uncle) Ieaun of recent years was by phone when we always greeted each other with a "Gday"! I shall miss those calls. He was a marvelous support to me whilst his sister, Margaret, was very poorly. Dick and I send our deepest condolences to Rosalie and family, and we are sure they, like us, will have a library of very happy memories about a person who was a real "Gentle Man".

Our thoughts are with Rosalie and all of Ieuan's friends and family in New Zealand. We were hoping to see you in January having just booked a holiday to Australia and N.Z., but sadly events have overtaken us.
Will miss the laughs we had together.
With fondest love,
Robert, Diana, Mark Jason and Alissa.
We were so glad to have met up with you in March this year. Despite your health not being good we enjoyed laughing and chatting over past times in the 'old country'. Such happy memories.
Philip,Valerie,and family ( U.K.)
Though you lived thousands of miles away you were never far from our thoughts. R.I.P.
