My dearest sweetest husband passed away from a massive aortic aneurism of the heart on Saturday 25th January 2014. He was my rock, my soul mate, my big teddy bear, and I will miss him so much. We had such a special marriage and I was blessed to be with him for 20 years.
Eric served in the SA Navy for 42 years and had an illustrious career. He retired as a Rear Admiral nine years ago, and he loved his retirement. He was on various sporting bodies and committees throughout his life and kept at it into retirement. He served on the National Amateur Boxing organisation for 19 years as the Treasurer, and was involved with Amateur Boxing for 40 years. He was presently serving on the Western Province Bowling Executive, he was the Secretary of STADCO, the Secretary of CTCTV, on the Board of the Anchors Away Village, Vice Chairman of the DA in Fish Hoek, and on the Board of the Water’s Edge Pre-Primary. All this he did voluntarily, and he still had time to play bowls three times a week.
Gone too soon, gone too soon …
