Moore said her father had a "big heart" and had helped out a friend who needed somewhere to live.

“And he tried to protect his two dogs during all this by keeping them locked inside.

Father Maliu ‘Otutaha, the reverend at St Peter’s Panguru, said: “He was very active in the community and a big support to people.
“It was very sad for the community to lose him, because he was very kind and generous.”
As of now, two dogs remain on the loose after police shot dead one of them and captured two others on Thursday.
One reportedly came back on Friday morning according to reports by 1news.
Cops urged members of the public to avoid any stray dogs in the area and to call 111 immediately if they are seen.
Police added they were unable to provide a description of the animals involved in the tragic attack at this stage.
A post-mortem examination of Neville is due to be carried out on Saturday, but police will remain at the scene overnight according to Far North Area Investigations Manager Detective Senior Sergeant Mark Dalzell said.
The Far North District Council’s district services general manager Dr Dean Myburgh said around 25 dogs had been taken from the property to its Kaitāia shelter after being "rounded up".
He said they were unregistered and some were puppies and confirmed the primary breeds of the dogs were neo mastiff and bull dog cross.
Myburgh also described the dogs as being in "very good condition".Read More on The SunHEAVEN OR HELL? I asked for a cute angel wings tattoo but was horrified by what I gotFAT SHAMED Docs said my huge legs were 'just fat' but a stranger spotted worrying symptoms

A history check on the property found there were no active registered dogs.

The Red Devils defence crumbled in West London and the howlers kept coming as each goal added to Erik ten Hag's woes.
De Gea, 31, faced the media afterwards and said sorry for "costing" the Red Devils three points.
He told Sky Sports: "I'm just taking my responsibility today. I think I cost three points for my team today to be honest. It was a poor performance from myself.
"After the first mistake and second it was tough for the team to keep playing. It was a horrible day. "READ MORE ON MAN UTDBrentford 4 Man Utd 0: Ten Hag and Man Utd plunged into crisis just two games into season
A routine save fell through De Gea's hands in the first half to reward the Bees with an opener.
Jay Dasilva hit a speculative shot from distance and the goalkeeper remarkably managed to let it nestle into the bottom corner.
Then just minutes later, De Gea presented Christian Eriksen with a dangerous pass out from the back, leading straight to the second.

The former Spanish international's blunder for was a sign of things to come for Ten Hag's men.
De Gea has been a world class keeper for the best part of a decade but it was truly an afternoon to forget.
The No1 admitted he should have been better but the whole team has a lot to learn this season.
He added: "Maybe you have to read the game better and kick it long. Maybe I shouldn't have played it to Christian [Eriksen]. They pressed one-against-one. I should have done better.
"We are not like other teams. They concede one goal and they win 5-1 or 6-1. It doesn't matter if they make that mistake.
"This is why I cost three points today because it was an easy save and then it was 1-0 to them and then we were going down, down, down.
"It was a poor performance. But we need to stick together, and learn what the manager wants. Play for the badge, and play for the club.”
