Koro never ever spoke of the war. In fact, it wasnt until he passed away that other fellow soldiers spoke of his bravery and his strength. He uri no Ngati Awa, Ngaiterangi i mate i te 29 o Hanuere 1993. Koro is buried at Te Paroa Urupa, Whakatane and I am proud to be one of his mokopuna. Moe mai e Koro, koutou ko nga tamatoa o te rua tekau ma waru.
