In loving memory ofBenjamin Osmers

Benjamin Osmers, a dedicated conservationist, helicopter pilot, son, husband, brother and father. Benny will mostly be remembered for his larger than life, fun loving personality. The zest and passion which he put into his work was equally matched by his love for his family and friends. Around a bushveld fire Benny would always be the one, beer in hand, sharing accounts of his helicopter flying adventures and wildly laughing at others’ jokes and anecdotes. He is sorely missed by all who had the privilege of meeting and knowing him.
