Peter’s Story

This is a tribute to Peter Gunther (Fig. 1), a wonderful person, family man, trusted colleague, professional and friend to many people within the water and mining industries. He will be sorely missed, and the profession, industry and country will be so much the poorer for his untimely passing on August 10, 2018. Peter was born on November 16, 1970, in South Africa’s Western Cape, where he subsequently grew up and attended school, ultimately matriculating in the Camps Bay High School class of 1988. He achieved his BSc in Chemical Engineering and then an MSc in Water Utilisation at the University of Cape Town in 2004. This, with a healthy love for sport, lead to Peter’s ongoing support of Western Province rugby, for which we mostly forgave him.
