THERE was shocked reaction locally and throughout South Africa as the news spread of the tragic and sudden death of Roger Scheffer of Greytown on Saturday.

Roger died doing what he loved the most – on his motorbike planning new trails for the Valley to Valley navagational enduro on Imbabala Lodge Muden.

With two others, he was out inspecting new potential trails when he collapsed. However by the time help was obtained, in what was an extremely remote area, it was too late

This is to be the fourth year for this event, initiated by Roger which attracts individuals from all over the country and thanks to him also benefitted local communities in various ways.

Although very involved in the excitement of the motorbike world, Roger also efficiently headed up Buffalo Security,as Managing Director, taking care of many incidents in the areas outside of Greytown and was highly regarded by his team and clients.

Roger, to the many who knew him was regarded as a man with a great zest for life and a constant sense of adventure and excitement .

The funeral service will take place on Saturday 11th March at 11 a.m. at Wesley Methodist Church, Hayfields, Pietermaritzburg.
