Reverend Colin Greville:
Passed away peacefully in his sleep early July 26, 2021, aged 94 years. A life very well-lived with his wife and companion of 65 years, Anne – she will miss him greatly. An exceptional father and father-in-law to Rosemary and Bruce (Nelson), Stephen and Glenda (Christchurch) and Michael and Tania (Nelson). An always interested Grandad to Olivia, Jed, Grace, Lucy and Felix, and a very happy Great-Grandad to Jack, August, and Poppy.
'Death came with friendly care; The opening bud
to heaven conveyed,
And bade it blossom there'
