It came as a shock to have received the sad news of the sudden passing of Rev Derek Potgieter who had served on the Board of the Sailors’ Society, Durban, since 2011. Rev Potgieter served the at the Glenwood Presbyterian Church.
Derek lived life to the full and exuded enthusiasm. His positive outlook, and contributions at the board meetings were valuable to the Society.
The Board of Directors and members of the Sailors’ Society wish to extend their deepest sympathy to his wife Colleen, son and daughter Leslie and Caitlyn as well as to other family members and loved ones. He will be sadly missed.
