Obituary for John Hone Hikitia Te Rangi Waititi, published 26 June 2012 (New Zealand Herald)

WAITITI, John Hone Hikitia Te Rangi (Major) . Kua hinga tetahi o nga totara nui a Tane, tetahi o nga tama toa o te Rua Tekau ma Waru. Kua karangahia e te ringa kaha o te mate. Kua hoki a (Major) Hone (John) Hikitia Te Rangi Waititi ki nga ringaringa o te Atua. Ka hoki ia ki raro i te maru o Tihirau, ki Kauaetangohia marae, ki roto o Te Whanau a Apanui. Ka tukuna ia ki te kopu o te whenua hei te 11am, Taite, 28 June 2012. Beloved husband of Mat (deceased) and Judith Ann. Dearly loved father of Reece (deceased), Teia, Kahurangi, Haimona and whangai children JK, Wally, Mama (deceased), Bobo, Willie, Huriana and Rhys. Loving grandfather of all his mokopuna and mokomoko. You touched so many lives papa, now its your turn to rest. Haere atu ra e te paapaa, moe mai ra ki to moenga roa. Hoki atu ra ki o maatua tipuna.
