12 November 2013 –
The Marist Softball Club extends our sympathy to Anne and children and Apa, Eddie and children and the extended Fatialofa family on the passing of rugby legend Peter Fatialofa.
Whilst Peter’s name was synonymous with rugby, Peter was a keen follower and member of the Marist Softball Club. The Fatialofa name adorns the archives of our club with Rita and Apa excelling in the 80 and 90s. Peter followed closely the softball career of his brother Apa and when the Diamond Club started a few months ago, Peter and Apa were the first to join.
Peter’s contribution to the sporting world was immense as was his contribution to Samoa. He was a made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit in 1996 for his services to rugby.
May he rest in peace.
