Knysna NSRI bid farewell to Wally Hyman

Wally Hyman, long time member of Knysna’s Sea Rescue station, has passed away after a battle with cancer. Wally joined the station in February 1982 and has been an active and much loved member ever since. 

Wally, with three other Knysna NSRI volunteers, was awarded a Certificate for Outstanding Service by then State President, and NSRI patron, PW Botha, for his part in rescuing two men from an overturned ski-boat in the Knysna heads in 1987.

For the last few years he took over the duties of station administrator. 

Station commander Graeme Harding said,” Wally was such a big part of our station. The guys are very upset. We are going to miss him.”

Our thoughts are with his family and friends. 

RIP Wally.

Wally Hyman 25 July 1947 to 22 October 2011
