FYI members and supporters. We have commissioned a memorial patch to honour our recently passed founding member #3 Ed Winiana. Please don’t use this forum to order however as they won’t be here for another couple of weeks. When they do arrive we will advise you further how they can be purchased. We are hoping they will be here in time for the Canterbury Chapter’s High Country Poker Run at the end of October so those attending this awesome event will get first dibs. Price will be $20 with all profits going to Ed’s widow Sandra-Lyn.
Regalia Officer here I will get Chris (TRMCC CIO) to load all our Memorial patches on the website once these ones arrive, the Al Spanns and Compo ones are $15.00 …
Manawatu Chapter, Triumph Riders Motorcycle Club:
Notification of passing of Our Chapter President:
Dear Chapter members.
It is with an extremely sad heart and spirit, one with which I know we all share together, Our thoughts and prayers are with Eds family at this tumultuously sad time,as we remember and honour the memory and passion of our chapters late President, Ed De-Villiers Winiana:
Ed was the only victim of a solo motorcycle crash that took his life on State Highway 38 near Tuai on Tuesday.
It appears at this early stage, that Ed succumbed to a major medical event while riding his beloved rocket.
Edward DeVilliers Winiana was born on the 22/07/1965, he was 55 at the time of his passing, Ed leaves a much loved family behind, Ed was both a Husband & friend to his wife Sandra Lyn, and a much loved father, and Grandad to his grandchildren.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Ed’s wife Sandra Lyn, Ed jnr, Harmony, Shelly, Joy, Shanye, Jasmine, Ariana, and Rickey, and his grandchildren.
Below: Ed taking delivery of his latest Rocket from Courtesy motorcycles Manager, Mr Phil Turnball, a NZ motorcycling legend.
Ed and Sandra-Lyn owned Tranzskills Nz ltd, a driver training organisation:
Ed loved to drive and ride anything that breathed air, burnt dinosaurs, and made noise.
He was a member of Western Bay Street Rodders, and over the course of time he owned V8 powered machines like a V8 CF Bedford van, A Jaguar Xr 8, an Oldsmobile V8 hearse. As well he was a keen drag racer, having dragged his Rocket at the Burt; Ed owned and rode Rockets, a Trophy, and a Harley.
Ed loved his music, with Pink Floyd, Metallica, ACDC, Bob Marley and Elton John being at the top of his music list.
Ed was one of 14 founding members of the Triumph Riders Motor Cycle Club NZ, he has membership number #03, and his date of joining is 10th august 2011, Ed served with passion, on the national committee of Triumph Riders Motorcycle Club, also founded by Ed, is the Rocket 3 owners club of NZ.
Edward DeVilliers Winiana’s,funeral is at the fox Pine airstrip, situated on the Northern side of Foxton, down past the ITM timber plant, this coming Monday the 14th of September 2020, at 11am.
Those attending on motorcycles, please if coming from the North, meet at the “Z” gas station on pioneer highway Palmerston North, be ready to make a departure at 09:30, where we will head to Foxton, and meet up with those riding up from the south, at the Mobile Garage on the Northern side of Foxtons main north south road at 10:00am.
From here it is a short ride to the airstrip, and we will ride in together, orderly, dignified, respectfully, quietly, and honourably!
After the service, we have been invited by Sandra Lyn and family, to ride together withEd on his last ride,from the funeral to the entrance to the Palmerston North Crematorium, when we can by all means possible, make any attempt to “wake the bugger up” with some orchestrated cacophony of exhaust sound:
Ed, Our brother! I reckon I’m not out of place to say, you have gone too soon my man.
You will be missed by all, you were loved by all.
May your spirit be blessed by the almighty.
We shall all meet again:
Edward DeVilliers Winiana, member number 03, Ride with Pride, RIDE IN PEACE!
