Sadly, Willem (Bill) Slykerman passed away last weekend following heart surgery.

Bill, aged 70, was a JNZ member for over 30 years, and was the club coach for the Onslow Judo Club and, more recently, the Tawa Judo Club in Wellington.

In addition to his club involvement, Bill had been the Treasurer for Wellington Area for a lengthy period. He was a regular and successful competitor in Kata Competitions.

The funeral service will be held on Thursday at 11am and will be conducted at the Catholic church in Dr Tayloer Terrace, Johnsonville.

The Preisdent, Board of Directors, and Officers of JNZ extend our deepest sympathy to Bill's family, his club members, and the Wellington Area Judo Association.
