Obituary – Dr Fazul Peerbocus

On Thursday 21st September we lost a dear friend and fellow-walker

On Thursday 21st September we lost a dear friend and fellow-walker, Fazul Peerbocus who practised as a dentist in Curepipe. He passed away after a short illness, and his funeral was held the next morning at Chemin Grenier where he hailed from.

He will be remembered as a jovial, open-minded person with whom we would share all manner of jokes, and a bon-vivant for whose forthcoming 60th birthday next month his walker friends were planning a party.

We will miss him, but all of us have to be on our way when the call comes…

Farewell and rest in peace dear friend. To his wife and children, and his large family, we extend our most sincere condolences.

Dr R N Gopee
On behalf of all friends of Fazul at Trou-O-Cerfs
