1989 - 2018
Josh Tingey grew up in Tauranga – the second son of Graeme and Theresa Tingey. Josh qualified as a surveyor after studying at Otago University and was engaged to marry his beloved Bex Wootton. Josh was tragically killed paragliding at Mount Maunganui in February 2018. He was a natural sportsman, as he enjoyed tennis and competitive hockey, but he really relished adventure sports that included roaring around on his 450cc Moto-X bike, water skiing and snow skiing.
The Tingey family have established a memorial fund for Josh through the Acorn Foundation, and the Josh Tingey Memorial Fund will support youth in the Western Bay of Plenty.
