34 year old Daniel Kopa from Pukekohe passed away on Thursday 8 June, after he was hit by a car in Hobson Street, Auckland City, and suffered severe head injuries two days earlier.
More than one hundred friends and family visited Dann who was in the Critical Care ward at Auckland City Hospital to say their goodbyes, including Auckland Mayor Phil Goff, before his life support was switched off.
Dann leaves behind his wife Calli and four daughters, aged five, two and eight-month old twins. He was described as an amazing husband and father, and one-of-a-kind.
A givealittle page has been set up for the Kopa/Cleland family to contribute to their future.
