Prof Roelf VisserThousands of students who lived in res whilst studying at Tukkies, will remember the friendly QS, Prof Roelf Visser, who later became Director of Residence Affairs.
 
Tebogo Tshwane reports in Perdeby that:
 
"A memorial service for Prof. Roelf Visser, Director of Residence Affairs and Accommodation, was held last Friday morning at Universiteitoord on Duxbury Road.
 
Prof. Roelf Visser died on 31 January at the age of 55. He had been diagnosed with lymphoma, a kind of blood cancer that causes white blood cells to divide faster and live longer than average. The blood cells eventually form a tumour. The tumour may develop in the lymph nodes, spleen, bone marrow, blood and organs.
 
In his passing, Prof. Visser leaves behind his wife Retha, their two daughters and their families."
