Sharing fond memories of Lance, Mr Hazelgrove described him as a “self-appointed cruciverbalist”, a person who enjoys or is skilled at solving crosswords.

“It was difficult to win a crossword with Lance,” Hr Hazelgrove said.

“He knew his words and made sure you knew he knew.

“He took great comfort in learning that most people don’t know what a cruciverbalist is.”

Mr Hazelgrove described Lance as a “kind and considerate” man, thanking all community members who cared for and supported him.

A celebration of Lance’s life will be held at the Anglican Church in Laurieton on Wednesday 10 July, commencing at 3.00pm.

“An invitation is extended to our community to come and celebrate his life,” Mr Hazelgrove said.
