Obituary from North Shore Times:

Harold Jerome Wenzlick died from a sudden heart attack at his home on October 23, aged 83 years. Mr Wenzlick lived on the property his pioneering grandfather, John Wenzlick, had been allocated when they first arrived in Puhoi from Bohemia in 1863. He was the youngest of 11 children born to Michael and Dora Wenzlick.

His niece, Iris Brett, says her uncle valued his independence and lived by himself for 25 years and was farming the property on his own until he died.

"He was a very private person. He lived his life how he wanted to, when he wanted to. Even in death it was like he wanted it. He dreaded being an invalid," Mrs Brett says. "He hadn't intended to die just yet. He had just bought a new stove and TV."

Mrs Wenzlick had spent two months in North Shore Hospital last year following lung problems, but had lived a relatively healthy life until his death although he suffered from arthritis in his hips. "He was thrown off horses so many times," says Mrs Brett.

He never married but was a very important part of his nieces and nephews' families.

Mrs Brett says just a week before his death Mr Wenzlick enjoyed his first trip to Auckland Zoo. "It was the first time the lion cubs came out. He thought it was just for him."

Mr Wenzlick trained to serve overseas in he army in World War I but never left the country. "He was just about to be sent overseas to the islands when the war finished", says Mrs Brett.

Mr Wenzlick, who still spoke the Bohemian dialect, was a very community minded person and a keen sportsman. He was involved in public life as much as possible and played tennis and rugby. He was an honorary life member and patron of the Puhoi sports Club. Mrs Brett remembers Mr Wenzlick as being a great tease, "a real leg puller". She says her uncle didn't want a funeral.

"He didn't want t fuss. But I did explain to him there was no way he was leaving this earth without something happened for him", says Mrs Brett.
A funeral service was held in Orewa on Saturday. (27 October 2001)
