In Loving Memory of

Aussie (2)

Aussie du Plooy

Aussie joined the AA in August 2017 and very quickly became a key & pivotal figure within the team. His contribution to the AA was substantial. Aussie could always be relied on when things were difficult and he never stepped away from a challenge.The span of his role meant that he worked closely with colleagues across all of IT and other business areas within the AA & with the dedication and focus he always showed to his work & the sheer brilliant force of his personality means he will be remembered fondly & missed by many.

He also played a key role in arranging social events across teams such as a cricket event with our Zensar colleagues in 2019. We will be looking to organise another cricket match in his honour, until we can do that we thought this book of rememberance would be a great idea, something that we will have printed into a physcial book which can be shared with his wife and daughters. Please take a moment to fill this with messages, memories, jokes he may have told, anything you think would be comforting to his family and bring a smile to their face. He spread joy wherever he went I’m sure there are plenty of examples they’d love to hear about. Please also share any photos or videos you may have.

Thank you.

Still can’t quite get my head around the news. Knowing I’ll never see Aussie’s smiling face again is a hard pill to swollow. He was an amazing man, with so much passion, enthusiasm and drive in everything that he did. He had a wonderful aura where he walked into the room and lit it …

What a journey we went on! Aussie’s first day in the office he was greeted to the team with me in the background bouncing around offering out cake that i’d made for the guys while developing the very early AAH2. From then he would never miss out on a slice of cake that was …

Aussie was the first person I met when I joined the AA and it was an immense pleasure to work with him. Despite me being a newbie in the team he never let me felt that way and always trusted me by giving me bigger responsibility every time and stood by me in every …

Aussie had a tremendous impact on all who know him. I feel privileged to have known and worked with him. He was always my go to person, he puts 100% into everything he did and has set an example for all of us. Work is definitely a different place without him, will really miss …

I feel truly blessed to have worked with Aussie and been close enough to call him a friend. Aussie and I joined the AA on the same day back on 7th August 2017, both working in very similar roles. Aussie was the sort of person who formed an instant rapport with people and we became …

Aussie was alwasy there to listen and provide guidance, his simple calm approach to issues allowed us to get things done when they looked impossible. In his short time at the AA he made a big impression and will be missed. …

I can say any day, Aussie has been the best manager I have had so far. He is very pragmatic, result oriented, funny and caring. He has been a mentor from whom I have learnt so much even without him knowing. What I have learnt from Aussie is live life to your fullest and …

I first met Aussie when I had the pleasure of interviewing him along with John Davies in 2017.  We were looking for a strong, no-nonsense, charismatic, technically gifted individual who could take on the Road Operations and had failed with all past candidates.  Within 10 mins of meeting Auss, John and I were kicking …

Matt Lockie

In memory of a great and magical man who inspired us all. Your ability to communicate and make people feel at ease was amazing to watch, alongside your natural talent and passion. We are all better people for having you in our lives. You will be forever in our hearts and memories. Thank you. …

I honestly don’t know how best to write about Assie (I knew him well before he was given the extra ‘u’ by the AA), but I am proud to have been able to call him a friend. We first met at Pepsi, where we worked together directly for several years very early in my …
