    New Zealand's oldest immigrant, 104-year-old Eric King-Turner, has died in Nelson.

    Mr King-Turner was 102 when he left his home near Southampton, England, to move here with his New Zealand-born wife Doris, now 90, with whom he had lived in Britain for 12 years.

    From here.

    I remember posting his story a while back. Very sad that he's gone, but at least he got to have his wish granted and managed to spend some time living his dream in NZ before he passed.

    Yes, he is a good reminder to us that it is never too late. I hope he packed some good times into the last few years.
