Killed in Action North East of Calueque during Operation Displace (Operation Excite). His Ratel received a direct hit by a Soviet PG-7 Anti-Tank Rocket on the Commanders position, killing him instantly. He was 19. He parents later moved to Australia and his lonely grave in the Verkeerdevlei Cemetery was all but forgotten. The Grey College, Bloemfontein Class of 1986 decided it was time to "bring their Officer home". Permission was sought and granted to have his remains exhumed and cremated. On Thursday 19 June 2014 at 16h00, a moving ceremony, attended by 80 people was held at Grey College Bloemfontein where his ashes were re-interred in a niche at the School's Garden of Remembrance. Three of the original four members of his Ratel crew were in attendance. They had successfully brought their Officer and Crew Commander "back home" to rest
