George William Davis


On Saturday, 11 March we gathered to celebrate the life of  George William Davis. The event was held at the The Stone Cottages, opposite the main entrance of George’s much beloved Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens in Cape Town. Although our hearts are broken, George never tolerated wallowing, so we came together to share stories and happy memories in his honour, followed by drinks, canapés and mingling.

We were unable to live stream the event and above is a recorded a video of the service.

In lieu of the traditional bunches of flowers, George would probably prefer that we direct our contributions elsewhere. With this in mind, we’ve set up a JustGiving page where you’re welcome to make a voluntary donation to The Edith Stephens Nature Reserve.
