We started in the film industry in the early seventies and have been friends ever since. We worked together at the National Film Board and then African Mirror and later in the freelance industry.
Willem owned the media supply company BPE Rentals and I am sure that many a production company will miss his enthusiasm, energy and straight business principles.
I lost a very good friend and colleague. May he rest in peace.
Willem is survived by his wife, Cheryl and two daughters.
The funeral will take place at 10am at Aasvoelkop Dutch Reform Church in Alida Street, Northcliff (near Beyers Naude Drive) on Thursday, 9 November.
