Avril Kotze from the UASA Durban office relayed the sad news that Mr. Soon Cronje from the NBCWPS (National Bargaining Council for the Wood and Paper Sectors) passed away in hospital on Friday morning, 13 April 2018.
Soon was one of the founding members of SAMRI in 1994 which later amalgamated with UASA on 1 September 2001. After his retirement, Soon and his good wife started their own guest house in Amanzimtoti and he later became an agent for the NBCWPS, a position he held at the time of his passing.
We are saddened by the passing of Soon. He will be sorely missed.
Our prayers are that the Good Lord with console and strengthen his wife and the children during their time of bereavement.
Rest in peace Soon!
