Private Funeral

Family to hold private funeral for Pua Magasiva in Wellington, later this week

Pua Magasiva's family will hold a private funeral, with his family and close friends in Wellington.

The former actor was found dead in Wellington on Saturday. Police said his death was not suspicious.

A spokeswoman told Stuff a funeral would be held at the end of the week.

Magasiva was a father and husband. He married Lizz Sadler last year.

The spokeswoman said his family wanted privacy at this time, as they were in "the acute stage of grief".

There would also be a tribute to Magasiva on Shortland St, but TVNZ have no further details.
