Craig M Comrie (1946-2016)
Thu, 15 Dec 2016 - 12:00

Emeritus Associate Professor Craig Comrie was a pillar of strength in Physics at UCT for 40 years. A few days after his 70th birthday, while walking his dog Mac on Rondebosch Common, Craig suffered a fatal heart attack. 

His warmth, compassion and enthusiasm endeared Craig to all his colleagues. Our sympathies are with his wife Brigid, his children Caitlin, Laura and Angus, his grandchildren and extended family, and Mac.

The Department of Physics will host a celebratory event on 21 April 2017 at 16:30 in the WE Frahn Library.
