Mosese Mamafainoa Buka Duikoro will be remembered as someone who persisted in doing good deeds and a humble young man among peers and in family circles.

Mr Duikoro, 20, drowned at Sigatoka River on June 17 while trying to rescue a friend.

His close friend, Laisenia Lomavatu, also drowned with him. He was laid to rest last week.

The late Mr Duikoro and Lomavatu made the ultimate sacrifice of love, when they dived into the Sigatoka River to rescue two people in distress amid swift currents.

Unfortunately, they drowned.

Mr Duikoro’s funeral service saw hundreds of people turn up to bid farewell to someone they described as a gentle soul and a young man who would put the needs of others before his own.

He was a former Queen Victoria School (QVS) student and team leader of the Tailevu Zone under the Scripture Union in Schools (SUIS) Fiji.

SUIS chairman Sitiveni Kalou said Mr Duikoro came into contact with the ministry through an older brother while he was a student.

Mr Kalou said he became well known in the ministry because of his persistence in doing good things. He said Mr Duikoro was a teachable person and was determined to become a minister, a pastor for the church.
