Ben Pounamu
« on: January 18, 2024, 10:42:35 PM »
I'm sorry to bring sad news to the region. I got news yesterday evening that Ben Pounamu (BenOfTheIwi) has passed away. He's suffered with heart complications since catching Covid a few years back and sadly was taken into hospital on Monday in Auckland, NZ. I was privileged to know Ben in RL as were many of the Nottingham contingent. I know since Covid he had become less active here due to his ill health and many of the newer members will not really know him but he helped create some interesting memories here including getting a head of state to strip naked. Ben will be missed.

While I regrettably didn't get to know him as well as many here, for what it's worth, I'd like to offer my condolences to Ben's friends and family. May he rest in peace.

I'm in tears, Ben was a real one and I'll take his memory in each and every day forward with me. Rest in power Ben, you'll most certainly be remembered, so many promise.

That is such awful sad news. I don't think there are enough words to say what a tragedy this is for everyone who knew him. Thank you for letting us know. May he rest in peace and his family be comforted in this time.
