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.

I think we all have such fond and happy memories of Aussie, as a colleague and as a friend.  I have a smile on my face when I think of him.  Aussie never shied away from hard work and complex problems.  He was a gentle giant, an incredibly hard worker, always willing to help …

So difficult to express what a sad loss this is to your family as well as to us all. I have known and worked for Aussie throughout all his time at the AA and during that time, I feel that I can class Aussie as a real friend as well as my manager.  We …

It’s always tough starting at a new company, but when I joined The AA nearly two years ago, I had the great fortune of landing the desk next to Aussie.  No matter what pressures he faced each day, there was never a dull moment when he was around.  He always had a smile, a …

Aussie was a great and decent chap. Passionate about his work and always there to offer guidance and support for those who asked for help. Since joining the AA, I have always been able to go to him with questions around how we can help our Patrol Officers and he constantly delivered. He demonstrated …

It’s really hard to find the words that do justice to Aussie’s character. He was always so full of life and energy. I still remember when he was telling me about the cycling trip that the family took to Lands End. I knew the area a bit and am a keen cyclist, and when …
