It is with the deepest regret that Fencing New Zealand must advise you all that our good friend and immediate past President, Mark Rance, passed away today, after a relatively short illness.
Our thoughts are with his wife Julianne, his family, and with all the members of our small community whose lives he touched.
Mark gave so much of his life to fencing in New Zealand and internationally, and will be sadly missed.
We will advise details of his funeral as soon as they have been arranged.
Kia Kaha everyone
