We received the following message from Andrew Heesom (1990/1W) whose dad, Jeremy Heesom (1958W) sadly passed away in Bloemfontein whilst travelling to Johannesburg:
I’d like to inform you that my Dad, Jeremy Heesom, White House 1954 to 1958, passed away on Tuesday 11 October 2022. My oldest sister, Marchelle, still lives in Cape Town with her husband and son, Jamian Heesom-Baron (Gray 2014) who graduated from UCT Medical Faculty in 2021, while my other sister, Lynda, lives in Burleigh Heads, Gold Coast in Australia with her husband and 2 children. I (White House 1990) am also still in Cape Town too and live in Melkbosstrand with my wife and 3 children.
Dad is survived by his youngest brother, Nick, White House (late 1950’s to early 1960’s).
Jeremy had been a farmer in Franschoek until the late eighties and then farmed in Stellenbosch until 1998 before retiring. Luca Heesom, son of Edward Nicholas (1990W) is currently at the College. He is in Grade 8.
Thinking of everyone in the Heesom family during this difficult time. Our sincerest condolences.
