EATON, Bernard Morey:
Of Kaikoura, Blenheim and Cheviot. Passed away at Aberleigh Rest Home, Blenheim, on Thursday, October 5, 2017. Aged 82 years. A clever, happy son of Morey and Elizabeth Eaton, whose potential was defeated by circumstances. He was a loved, loyal and often fretted-over brother of Margaret (deceased) and Grove Jones, Pat (deceased) and Pam, Kate and Dave Waters (both deceased), Colleen (deceased) and Bob Pacey, Doreen and Trevor (deceased) Boyd, Anne and Jim Foster (both deceased), Teresa (Teri) Eaton and Dennis Whiterod, Joan and John (deceased) Sweeney and Helen and Brian (deceased) Earl. Bernie will be remembered as a skilled and creative craftsman and cabinet maker, (whose chairs are still part of the historical display at Parliament). He was a bold adventurer, the family fix-it man, a star cabbage grower and an intelligent solitary figure. Messages may be sent to the Eaton Family, c/- PO Box 110, Blenheim 7240. A funeral service for Bernard will be held at the Mayfield Chapel, cnr Hutcheson and Parker Streets, Blenheim at 11.00am Wednesday, October 11, followed by cremation at the Sowman Crematorium.
