David Nethercott Obituary, Death – In a bittersweet moment, we bid farewell to a cherished individual, David “Taff” Nethercott, who peacefully passed away at his home surrounded by his children and faithful dog. Taff, as he was affectionately known, was more than a beloved Father, Husband, Brother, Grandad (Ganipa), Son, and Friend; he was a beacon of love and warmth in the lives of those fortunate enough to know him. While his departure leaves a void that cannot be filled, we find solace in the belief that he is reunited with his beloved mum. In honoring his wishes, there will be no funeral or service, but a unique celebration of life awaits.
Taff’s life was a tapestry woven with threads of love, laughter, and camaraderie. His roles as a father, husband, brother, grandad, son, and friend exemplified the depth of his connections and the impact he had on those around him. While the pain of his absence is profound, the memories of the joy he brought to countless lives will endure. In true Taff fashion, he requested no formalities, no somber gatherings, but instead, a final gathering with the boys for Friday night drinks. This epitomizes the spirit of a man who valued the simple joys of life and cherished the bonds forged over shared laughter and camaraderie. To honor Taff’s wishes, friends and acquaintances are invited to join in a celebration of his life on Friday, the 17th, starting from 4 pm. The gathering will take place next to the Ruakaka pub, with entry through the Ainga restaurant and an exit out the back. This casual and convivial setting reflects Taff’s preference for informal gatherings and the importance he placed on the company of friends.
The event is an opportunity for all of Taff’s mates and those who knew him to come together, share stories, and raise a glass in his memory. It’s a chance to celebrate the man who touched so many lives with his kindness, humor, and unwavering friendship. As we gather to celebrate the life of David “Taff” Nethercott, let us remember the love, laughter, and warmth he brought into the world. His absence will be deeply felt, but the memories of his vibrant spirit will live on in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to know him. May this gathering be a testament to the profound impact he had on the lives of many, and may Taff’s memory continue to inspire us to cherish the simple joys of life and the bonds we share with one another.
