It’s with Great sadness that Neville Kitchin passed away peacefully yesterday 21/1/2019. He was involved with the Paddle Ski Club for many years and really enjoyed time spent out on the water with his fellow paddlers.
We will be holding a memorial service at the St Michael’s church in Umhlanga (7 Durban View Road) on Monday, 28th January at 12:30.
Message from Ernie Hovelmeier: I heard today about the passing of Neville who for many years was an integral part of our club and its success over the years as honorary auditor. Neville and I had very special times together as we weaved financial webs to beat the lawsuits and costs. I would sincerely appreciate some sort of representation from the club at the memorial service. If you can, it would be nice to have a couple of guys there with their DPSC shirts on.
Message from Johnny Vassilaros attached is a photo of Neville Kitchin, one of our old Stalwart Members. Neville was the club auditor for many years and an honorary life member. For many years he worked tiresly keeping an eye on us and seeing to our books particularly during the preparations for the AGMs. Furthermore he offered sound advice during our long struggle with the Point development and was always ready to assist in any situation. A real gentleman that our club should be extremely proud to have had. The Club should be aware of past members like Neville Kitchin, and ensure they are not forgotten. It is through such people who contributed so much during our times of difficulties, which eventually got us to where we are today.
