It is with regret that we inform you that David O’Callaghan, a long-time member and officer of our Chamber passed away after losing his battle with cancer.
Those of us in the Chamber knew David as friendly, open and helpful no matter what the situation. He always had a ready smile and routinely went out of his way to help Chamber members.
David was a past Treasurer of the Chamber however, it will be his unstinting, energetic and enthusiastic commitment to the Chamber across all aspects that he will best be remembered for.
David was a keen golfer and cyclist. He was also a true Kiwi. Quiet and understated about his own ability and accomplishments, passionate about New Zealand’s success in business and in sports, and always prepared to acknowledge if a better team came through to defeat a kiwi side on the day.
Our thoughts and condolences go out to Lynda, Christopher and Sarah. He will be greatly missed.
