Sir Paul Holmes passed away peacefully early this morning surrounded by his family
at home in Hawkes Bay, as he wished to be.
Sir Paul had been in poor health since having heart surgery earlier in the year. In recent months he had also been suffering from a resurgence of prostate cancer.
More than just a broadcaster, Paul was a loving husband and father, as well as a generous friend. He loved people and people loved him.
Lady Holmes, Millie, Rueben and Ken Holmes would like to thank the public for their incredible support. They request privacy from the media as they now grieve.
Information on how the public can pay tribute to Paul will be announced in due course.
