Sir Edmund Hillary 1919-2008

'I continued cutting a line of steps upwards'

'We knocked the bastard off'

'In some ways I believe I epitomise the average New Zealander. I have modest abilities, I combine these with a good deal of determination and I rather like to succeed'

Fitting memories of the ever humble beekeeper from Tuakau, but great man who never stopped moving upward throughout his life, always determined to get to the goal in sight.

A truly remarkable New Zealander, you will always remain a strong inspiration.

Forever the legend Sir Edmund Hillary.

RIP, my sincerest condolences to your family.
