Sent off in style

It was a huge funeral on Thursday for one of the founders of the longest-standing cartage businesses in Gisborne. Mike Treloar, a founding partner in Pacific Haulage, passed away last Saturday. He was 67.

His contribution to the forestry industry has been acknowledged by Eastland Wood Council.

His funeral was attended by hundreds of people and featured several hot rods, including this old hearse (pictured), which carried his body. This was a tribute to Mr Treloar’s long association with Surf City Rod and Custom Club. He was rightfully farewelled in style and will be missed.
