Johan Rall (Hon FSAIMechE and past President of SAIMechE (1987-1988).

“SAIMechE held a very important place in Johan’s life from his student days in the early 1950’s until the last two years before his death on New Year Eve this year. He was internationally known as a great engineer and in the latter part of his life consulted all over the world. If there are any of his contemporaries still in the Institute, please inform them that he kept them and the Institute close to his heart until the end of his life.” Received from Johan’s wife, Wendy.

The below is the obituary posted in a local newspaper by Johan's family:

“With great sadness we say farewell to our wonderful Dad, Grandpa and mentor. We are all truly blessed by being part of your family and having you play such an important part of our lives. Your wisdom and generosity has moulded each one of us - we carry you with us each day and we will continue to celebrate and remember you. Mally. Martin, Morgan, Mitch and Muzz".
