He died 26 November during the night and a funeral service was held in his honor on the night of the 27th in the Red Hill ward building in Papakura. Elder Kyle Nelson was able to represent missionaries past and present who loved Bro. Peni! He was able to share many choice experiences that highlighted Bro. Peni's many wonderful qualities and ended with his testimony in Maori that Elder Peni had written out for him and schooled him on.
Bro. Peni's body remained in this Marae in Papakura the night of the 27th and then was to be taken to Whanganui, according to Bro. Peni's desires and their he was to have another funeral service with his family and would be buried there among family.
Thank you Bro. Peni, we love you!
