IT industry pioneer Trevor Eagle died suddenly on Saturday.
Eagle collapsed as he was climbing aboard his 18m launch Virtual Reality on Saturday. He was 68.
Eagle was best-known as the founder of the privately-held IT company Eagle Technology and its predecessor Prime Computer, which he founded in 1969.
He was also active in industry advocacy roles, chairing the High Tech Council and publicly opposing what he saw as the disastrous implications of this year's Employment Relations Bill.
