Michael Cullen Death – Obituary News : Sir Michael Cullen has died .
We are sad to report that Sir Michael Cullen has passed away, according to the following statements posted on social media on August 19. 2021.
Jacinda Ardern is at New Zealand Parliament. 1h · Wellington, New Zealand · This morning I woke to the sad news that Sir Michael Cullen had passed away. Plenty of people will write plenty of things about his political legacy – it was vast. But it’s who he was as a person that I will miss the most. He was fiercely intelligent and hugely funny. But he was also incredibly kind. He never hid when he found politics difficult, or the trade offs hard. He was human, and he was never afraid to show it. I will miss him terribly. To Anne and all Michael’s family, I hope you feel the virtual arms of New Zealand around you. Rest easy, Michael. And thank you.

People will be appreciating Sir Michael Cullen in 100 years a really great man Rest In Peace and condolences to all your loved ones a great loss to our countryLinda Boyce
Very sad. I’m not political but He was a huge figure in New Zealand for many years
I don’t think most New Zealanders really understand the extent of his legacy, the super fund, KiwiSaver and working for families. They have provided a level of security for our country
Very sad news, I know from watching the documentary that he had hoped to make it to November so he had ‘options’ about his passing. I’m also saddened he wasnt able to access this and hope his last days were as comfortable as possible.
Ā fellow protester for early childhood māny years ago. Respected him enormously. Good guy.
A great loss for the family and Friends that Sir Michael Cullen suddenly passed away was a true dedicated leader and politician fought for life till end positively.RIP/
Very sad news at a difficult and challenging time, I hope his family were able to be with him and will get to farewell him in an appropriate manner
RIP Sir Michael. You were an example of how politicians should conduct themselves. I too hope his final days were pain free.
My condolences to his whānau, but also to you, Jacinda. I know he was a mentor and friend who you’ll miss terribly. Aroha noa atu ki a koe.
I remember him visiting the social welfare office in Whakatane in his early days in parliament and loved his open and kind manner and great sense of humour .
Lovely tribute. Our strength to the whanau and you in your role
Micheal was a beautiful man and humble. I met him a few times with my Dad and he was lovely. So sorry for your loss and sending love & prayers at this very sad time. RIP
