Dear friends and members of the New Zealand American Association,

We are sad to remember 2 stalwarts of the NZAA who have recently died.

They are Krystyna Tomaszyk (13th June) Raymond O'Brien (1st July).

Krystyna, who was born in Poland and came to Wellington in October 1944,

received a Queen's Service Medal for services to the community in 2013.

Ray, a former Chair of the NZAA, spent the past 10 years in Auckland

following the death of his beloved wife, Adele.

He is remembered as "a warm and gentle man, possessed of

natural nobility of character... a true gentleman."
