Veteran rifle shooter Brian Whiteman died on Saturday, November 17, aged 82.

He was a life member of the New Zealand Police Shooting Association, member of the Upper Hutt Rifle Club and had represented New Zealand overseas many times.

He served as chief range officer for the national champs (Ballinger Belt) at the Seddon Range for a number of years and was still a regular attender to watch the competition every January.

Son Alan said his father was diagnosed with cancer four years ago and made a good recovery.

But treatment had led to heart problems and he had gone downhill very quickly.

Mr Whiteman's funeral will be held on Wednesday, November 21, at the Wesley Centre, corner of Fergusson Dr and Benzie Ave, at 2pm, followed by private cremation.
