Bryan William Begley

19 Oct 1938 - 14 Jul 2021

19 – 10- 1938 – 13-07-2021

So cherished husband, father, poppa, brother, and friend. Great Kauri and soulmate of Penny.

Father to Lisa, Sonja, Ciaran, Dan, and Malia.

So missed by his grandchildren Ben, Zac, Theo, Dylan, and Jazzy.

Confidant of Nelson and Carrot.

A father, innovator, gardener, a man of ideas and huge compassion, a champion of the unprivileged

He has touched many through the world.

We are so grateful to those who have supported us in his journey especially the wonderful staff at Elmwood and Colwyn Houses, of which we could not speak more highly of their friendship and compassion.

His service will be held at The Dunstall Memorial Chapel on Sunday July 18 at 10am, followed a private cremation. He welcomes any who would like to come, please wear bright clothes.

No flowers but he would prefer any contributions in his memory to Dementia Hawkes Bay. Messages for Bryan can be left at or posted to The Begley Family C/o Taradale Medical Centre 20 Puketapu Road, Napier, 4110.
