Adrian Gover 1936-2022
It is with much sadness that we mark the passing of Reverend Canon Adrian Donald Gover.

Adrian Gover served as National President from 2013 to 2017, Waikato Branch President from 2012 to 2020 and received the Waikato Branch Service Award in 2018.

During his time as National President, he began the modernisation process of the Society with introducing tele-conferencing to a new structure for conducting Executive meetings.


His ancestors, Joseph & Rachel Duncan arrived on the "Fifeshire" to Nelson in 1842, and John & Mary Fowler on the "Indus" to Nelson in 1843.
