OBITUARY: TRIBUTE TO A FOUNDATION MEMBER
John Buchanan, a foundation member of the Paeroa Society died suddenly at Thames recently. Jack (as we all knew him) and his wife, Grace were consistent supporters of the Society in all its' activities. Big in stature, fellowship and generosity he will be ever remembered by all who knew him in the wide range of interests he contributed to, both at Paeroa and Ngarua, where he farmed for some years before returning to Paeroa in 1952.
Shortly before his death, Jack and Grace celebrated their Diamond Wedding Anniversary.
