For all those who knew Abie, he passed away peacefully in Johannesburg on the 2nd May at 12pm, after a long battle with cancer.
'Abie baby, the last great white hunter, gone to a better hunting ground!'
Abie fought in the 2nd World War, he worked for many years at Hogarths Bulawayo and then at Zeco Bulawayo, working on projects all round Zimbabwe and Botswana. Abie was a member of the Van Niekerk family who built the Gwaai Hotel.
Sadly missed by his family Patti, Noaline, Michael and Kathleen, and their families and his brother in law and friend Buster, and Margaret MacLean
