Matamata Chronicle - - News -

James Robert Wheadon was an ex­cep­tion­ally com­mu­nity minded man who al­ways put the needs of other peo­ple be­fore him­self.

As a well-known and re­spected mem­ber of the Mata­mata com­mu­nity, he was also a ded­i­cated Ro­tar­ian who lived by the motto Ser­vice Above Self.

Fondly known as Jim to ev­ery­one who knew and loved him, he passed away sud­denly at Tau­ranga Hospi­tal on Fe­bru­ary 8, 2012 af­ter a short ill­ness. He was 72 years old.

Jim was farewelled yes­ter­day at St An­drew’s Pres­by­te­rian Church, his place of worship, and is sur­vived by his wife Joyce and sons Robert and Christopher.

Gone but never for­got­ten: Jim Wheadon.
