The loss of the patriarch is substantial and recovery is never complete. Uncle Anton led his family with unwavering strength and dignity. He was indeed the strong and silent type, a true gentleman, always kind and caring.
My deepest sympathies go out to Aunty Mangi, his three sons, one daughter, many grandchildren and extended family. I wish you all peace and strength during this very difficult time.
My father, the late Louis Willenberg, was a long time friend and I’m sure they’ll be reunited for that long awaited chat and catch up on old times.
Rest in eternal peace dear Uncle Anton
There are no words to describe the sadness we feel at the loss of our beloved grandfather, Papa.
He was the embodiment of pure-heartedness, strength, gentleness and generosity.
Part of Papa’s legacy was his ability to see the best in everyone. Throughout my life, he made me believe I could accomplish anything, and yet, he also offered his love and acceptance at times when I fell short.
He was the best piano teacher and badminton partner. From him I learned that a good life requires simplicity - music, playfulness, family and a warm cup of sweet milk tea to cheer you up.
It is no exaggeration to say that I am the person I am today because of Papa.
I believe he continues to live on within the hearts of all of us, including within his grandchildren - Nichelle, Alice, Faith, Haley & Ethan.
May we continue his legacy.
My dearest God father, Anton uncle, I cherish all the good times we had.
You are always loved ❤️ and never forgotten!!!!
May your soul rest in Heaven!!!! And eternal life with Jesus ❤️ ❤️ love ❤️ love ❤️
