Two dear family members who were planning to attend the Alve Family Mini-Reunion in Palmerston North on Easter Day 2015 have died the weekend before.
On Saturday 28 March Ken McLeod died in Taupo. Ken was the long time partner of Christine Rose (nee Alve) and son-in-law to Hilton & Jean Alve. Ken's death notice is here.
The following day Lionel (Alve) Purdom died suddenly at the Willard Rest Home in Palmerston North, just 2 months short of his 90th birthday. With Alve's passing only three of the second generation Alves survive - Hilton, Ivan and Bill. Alve's biography is here. (You will need a password to view this.)
The wider Alve whanau (family) express their sincere condolences to Ken's partner Christine and Alve's daughters Janice, Neryl & Andrea, and their families as they journey on without their dear ones. May they know much comfort.
