Former Executive Director of Sassda remembered

It is with great sadness that I need to inform Sassda members that Ian Elsdon-Dew passed away peacefully early on Sunday morning, the 9th of December 2012, after a long illness.

Ian was very well known and much loved in the stainless steel industry, having been actively involved in the distribution, as well as tube and pipe, sectors over many years.  Ian was the Executive Director of Sassda covering the 1986 to 1994 period.  He also represented Sassda in KZN between 2002 and 2009.

Ian was honoured with an Achievement Award at the 2012 Stainless Steel Awards ceremony held earlier this year.

Our sincere condolences go to Rosemary and the entire Elsdon-Dew family.

Ian’s funeral will be held at St James Church in Morningside, Durban at 2:30pm on Friday, 14th December 2012.  In accordance with Ian’s wishes – please, no flowers!  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the South African Guide Dog Association.


Kind regards

Bill Scurr

Executive Director
