Farewell to Ron Taylor

A Mighty Totara has fallen

22 November 2016

It is with deepest regret as I mourn with the whanau, the loss of Ron Taylor, man of mission. Ron was General Secretary of the then NZ Anglican Board of Mission from 1993 until 1999. After I came into the role in 2003, I knew Ron as he chaired the NZCMS Council and also served on the Christian Blind Mission in various capacities. He had a glint in his eye, a positive outlook and an inexhaustible appetite for Mission. We can celebrate the life of a man intent on serving his God and his church in Mission.

The Church has lost a true man of mission.

Our sincere condolences go to Ron’s family.

Moe mai ra, moe mai ra, moe mai ra e te Rangatira

Haere I runga I te aroha o te Atua

May he rest in peace and rise in Glory.

Rev Canon Robert Kereopa – CEO Anglican Missions Board
