It is with sadness that we record the passing of a much loved member of our team….Talatau Lakalaka (Jimmy).
He was a fair and industrious man respected by colleagues, associates, customers, suppliers and competitors alike. A man of few words, his actions spoke volumes. He will be remembered for his guidance, sense of humor and not least his strength and skill in all his work and life.
Jimmy was the standard for our Company. His 30+ years of solid dedication to service and his devotion to ethics and integrity made him a team leader like no other.
He was a very proud family man and leader in his own community and considered a part of the Donnelley Family.
Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, the Donnelley Civil team could not attend Jimmy’s service. As a team, we came together to provide Jimmy and his loved ones a guard of honour and convoy. Having all our fleet parked on the side of the road as he was taken to his place of resting, then a drive through sounding our horns as a symbol of our presence and farewell.
We pray that he is well and drinking kava with old friends, hopefully still watching over us and providing guidance in a different way.
A beautiful soul is never forgotten
RIP Talatau Lakalaka (Jimmy).
