Jeremy

 President Casper has just sent out this message:
"It is with great sadness that I have to inform you of the passing away of our beloved PE Jeremy Glover.
I do not have all the information, but I believe he was hit by a cyclist this morning, whilst doing duty as a marshall at the Cycle Race and he passed away in hospital this afternoon.
I have spoken to DG Lynette - his 2 sons are coming to South Africa this evening.
Whilst we mourn this tragic loss, let us stand together and assist the family where we can."

 

A bio written by Jeremy last year is fitting for our fellow Rotarian who was passionate about Service above Self but always full of fun.
"Jeremy was born a long time ago on 3 March 1947 in Singapore at the end of WW Two. Dad was a regular military officer and Mum a wartime soldier with the Female Auxiliary Nursing Yeomanry (FANY for short – don’t laugh, they didn’t in those days!). He was educated in the UK at boarding school from the age of 7 until 18. Then he went straight to Sandhurst and was commissioned in 1967 into the Royal Artillery, the same Regiment as his father. After a fairly undistinguished career, apart from commanding the Artillery training Regiment in Woolwich where Andrew Young was stationed (not at the same time though!), he ended up in Zimbabwe as part of the British Military Training Team (BMATT).

He and his wife Caro decided that Zimbabwe was so great that Jeremy took early retirement and went into business building a photographic safari camp in the Gwaai Valley near to Zimbabwe’s renowned Hwange National Park. That lasted until the year 2000 when Robert Mugabe threw his toys out of the cot and tourism died. So to South Africa Jeremy and Caro went in 2003. Jeremy got a job and muddled through for seven years before throwing in the towel to look after his ailing wife. Sadly Caro died in May 2011. Since then he has re-invented himself firstly as a bowler with Gordon’s Bay Bowling Club, secondly by joining HSRC (is he grateful or what to Jim Whitehall who pressured and cajoled him ever so gently to take this momentous and hugely gratifying step), and thirdly becoming very involved in the administration of his local Anglican Church – St Philip’s. That is Jeremy in a nutshell.”
