lived: ±53 years
FP#47. His wife Lily wrote:

"[He was] a corporal in the Army when we met. He was a very humorous person and loved to tell jokes . He became an Officer (lieutenant), and did duty on the border. When he returned, he left the force. We were then staying in Pretoria .

He was exceptionally good in remembering names and dates. He would walk in the street, see someone, go up to them and say, "You are so-and-so; we were on a week training course in Lenz 5 years ago". The other person would then say "yes, this was long ago. How did you recognise or remember me?". He would reply, "I just know/remember a name".

He then did unusual jobs, such as selling vacuum cleaners in Potchefstroom , Servicing Singer sewing machines in Carletonville. Yes, he could sew, but was better at setting the thread tension to ensure an even stitch. He then became the Manager of a furniture store (Sales House) which became a clothing store. First in Kroonstad, transferred to Vereeninging, Vanderbijl and then to Klerksdorp.

He loved people and respected their point of view, but clearly stated his point of view.

Worked at the then Iscor Vanderbijlpark as detective in their security Department

After I think 19 years - he became ill and was boarded in November 96 and he died in Jan of 1997 as stated. My hubby was buried in Vanderbijlpark .

By me he will be remember as a fun-loving person who was a perfectionist in the calligraphy ( writing) & spelling area.

The 3 kids we have were loved by him, and he had installed a lot of good values in their lives.

His hobbies: loved woodwork and played tennis, although in the latter years he did not do any of the two."
