Veterinarian was ‘greatest hero’

Dr Joseph van Heerden (72), much-loved veterinarian and “greatest hero” amongst animal lovers, passed away on Monday (10/02).

A post on the Kimberley Veterinary Clinic’s Facebook page notified the public that Van Heerden passed away in the comfort of his home, surrounded by family.

“He fought a long and hard battle with cancer, always with optimism. We will miss his fierce dedication to do what is right, his counsel and his friendship,” the post reads.

“He meant a lot to the Kimberley Vete­rinary Clinic com­munity. His physical presence may be gone, but the lessons he taught us in life and while courageously approaching death will serve us all well for many years to come.

“Dr Joseph certainly made the world a better place. We will miss you and your ever-smiling face. You are one of our heroes. May you rest in the peace you so richly deserve."

Van Heerden’s memorial service will be held on Friday (14/02) at 10:30 at the Dutch Reformed Church Harmonie at 30 Kekewich Street in Monument Heights.

For catering purposes, it is reques­ted that people indicate on the Kimberley Veterinary Clinic’s Facebook page if they plan to attend the service.

Alternatively, a message can be sent on WhatsApp or via SMS to 082-899-0009.

The clinic will be closed from 10:00 until the end of the service.
