In Memory Of…


Early on Tuesday morning Mr Ronald Chippindale was killed after being struck by a car near his home in Porirua, Wellington.

Ronald Chippindale, most commonly known for his investigative work on the Erebus crash in 1979, was far more than that to his much loving family and friends.

Ronald Chippindale was a Husband, Father, Brother, Grandpa, Uncle and Cousin. His family loved and adored him. He was a great man! 


As Grandson to Ron Chippindale, it is with great sorrow that I see such a man of stature, integrity, servant-hood, and love leave our lives. Grandpa was a great inspiration to me, and it is only now with his passing that I truly feel the extent of who he was. Many character defining traits of his I seek to grow in my own life. Grandpa was one of those men that I can attribute to the shaping of my life, one I looked up to and aspired to be like.

In loving memory of the man that was, in all he was.
