Br Steve Leatherland RIP

Sad news yesterday of the passing of Br Steve Leatherland in Auckland. Br Steve has battled with illness for some time and had recently been in a nursing home before being hospitalised.

Br Steve had several "tours of duty" at FDMC and until last year he had been a member of the Brothers community here. Many students over the last decade will recall his driving exploits as he delivered students and borders to all parts. Staff have many memories of Steve including his morning reflections and poetry readings.

The funeral for Bro Steve will take place at 10.00am in St Anthony's Church, Mangere Bridge next Saturday. His internment will follow immediately in the adjacent cemetery and he will be laid to rest next to Bro Matthew Hautus who also was on the FDMC staff in the late 70's.

May perpetual light shine upon him
And may he rest in peace.
