Allan Hubbard has died from injuries received in a car accident near Oamaru yesterday afternoon. He is described in the Herald this morning as a "failed financier", and whilst he has received all sorts of negative publicity over the last few years, his philanthropy over many, many years should be his legacy.
He died with charges from the Serious Fraud Office hanging over him. However, he was also a life-long follower of Jesus, and as a fellow Christian, we believe that he will now be judged by the only one who matters.
Rest peacefully Mr Hubbard. We offer our sincere condolences and prayers to those who mourn his passing.
