Prof. Visser dies at age 55

MAXINE TWADDLE

Professor Roelf Visser, Director of Residence Affairs and Accommodation, passed away on 31 January at the age of 55.

Prof. Visser was diagnosed during the holidays with lymphoma, a kind of blood cancer that causes white blood cells to divide faster and live longer than average. The blood cells eventually form a tumour. The tumour may develop in the lymph nodes, spleen, bone marrow, blood and organs.

Prof. Visser is survived by his wife, Retha, and two daughters and their families. His family has requested that those wishing to express their sympathy make donations in Prof. Visser’s name to research into Hogkins Lymphoma Cancer instead of sending flowers.

A memorial service for Prof. Visser will be held at 10:30 on Friday at the NG Church on Duxbury Road.
