On Sunday 29 January 2017, my father, Flores Petrus Kotzee passed away; after a sickbed of two-and-a-half months, with lots of ups and downs. The downs won in the end. He was aged 90 years, 8 months and 2 days at the time. His funeral service was on 1 Feb and afterwards we had a grand 'wake' at the Capital Craft Beer Co.
I was kept very busy with all arrangements, so I stayed off the blog for the week. I still have a lot to do, but it is more manageable.
The picture was taken roughly eighteen months ago, while we were on a hike. Among others, he loved nature. My father was a widower, with four sons, of whom three were older than 60 at the time of his passing. During the 1980's, he was on top of his rock in the steel industry and well known internationally, until well into the 1990's.
