Death Notices

It is with a heavy heart I must advise all of the passing of two Dagaboys - Mark Ellement and Fred Duckworth.


Battling cancer with a fighting spirit Mark sadly passed away in Bulawayo on the 6th, last Sunday morning, I understand he was surrounded by family and friends. Many of our older Dagaboys and those not resident in Zimbabwe will not have known Mark - I first met him in the early millennium when he was hunting for Matapula Safaris and only fairly recently learnt he was in the Department, mid 80’s for about a year - he resigned to go aboard a ship bound for the Antarctic. On Facebook (Dagaboys) there are many tributes to Mark from his colleagues, hunting associates and friends across the world -.he was held in high regard and loved by all.

Mark’s memorial service will be held at the Ellement’s home this Saturday (12th) at 12.30. At this time of great sadness we reach out to Karen and the family - our thoughts and prayers are with you all, letters of condolences to


I only recently heard that Fred Duckworth’s passed away in the Netherlands in his 80th year on the 21st of March; our deepest sympathies go to Elise, Fred’s wife and companion for many years. Fred was in the Department in the mid 70’s - his last posting was to Sinamatella. Elise’s needs our support - her address is Rest in Peace Fred - Our thoughts and prayers are with you Elise.
