He taught me about daring to dream, about the complexities of people, about driving performance, about winning, and about being a new New Zealander.
I loved him, respected him, admired him, trusted him and was driven by him to Learn, Fail and Fix.
He was caring and demanding in equal parts. He was provocative, brave, controversial, passionate and independent.
A pirate amongst sailors.
He passed today. 78 years young.
A New Zealand Lion.
