Fire Fighting Disaster
Angus Wilson died of a heart attack on the 11/10/2013 while fighting a fire on his sister-in-law's farm near Grahamstown. He was 79, and in good health despite having had two heart bypass ops previously, the second one quite a while ago.
He has been very fit, climbing mountains and involved in church and upliftment projects in a Fishhoek informal settlement.
He leaves his wife, Gilian, two sons and two daughters.
We, at the ECUFPA office pass on our sympathies to the Wilson family. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
