Watch bids farewell to ‘passionate patroller’

The Monte Vista Plattekloof Glen Neighbourhood Watch last week paid their final respects to one of its members who had passed away earlier this month.

A memorial drive was held on Thursday 14 January for member Fritz Steyn throughout the neighbourhood. The convoy was attended by the police, local armed response companies, as well as the ward councillor, Cheryl Visser.

Flowers were also given to Steyn’s wife, Chantel, and the family. Steyn (44) passed away on Monday 4 January.

According to Yvonne Pretorius, neighbourhood watch secretary, Steyn joined the organisation in March 2019.

“He was a passionate patroller who went as far as fixing the fence of the reserve which belongs to Eskom, all along Montague Road at his own expense,” Pretorius says.

His duties were the usual for all patrollers of the neighbourhood watch, going out and being visible. He also was part of the C3 patrol group.

“A couple of patrollers would go out once a week to look for potholes and street lights that were out and these would be logged at the City of Cape Town. He was also an active member of our fundraising committee, always willing to give his time and always extremely generous.

“He had a big heart, was generous to a fault. He adored his wife, Chantel, and his daughter, Nelia. He had a big personality and he is going to be sorely missed,” Pretorius says.

A description of Steyn on the neighbourhood watch’s social media page reads, “He was passionate about the neighbourhood watch and enjoyed serving in the fundraising committee”.

“Fritz was a dear friend and I miss him every day,” Pretorius says.
