Remembering Terry Mumme

Former WTMC club member, Terry Mumme, passed away on 22 May 2020 in Upper Hutt.  Terry was active in the club in the late 60s and 70s, tramping, climbing and skiing.  Members who knew Terry will remember his flamboyance and enthusiasm.  As a result of multiple sclerosis, Terry lost touch with many who knew him from former days.  Terry loved the outdoors, and his work as a geophysicist enabled him to travel extensively to many remote parts of New Zealand.  He was a good friend who brought colour to our lives.

  1. Sad to hear. Terry was with us on the first trip I did to the Olivines. Two trips, one led by Paul Milsom and the other by Brian Hunt, met up on the Olivine ice Plateau.
