John-Kretzen-123-02-2015On 10 January this year, the Geomatics profession was saddened by the passing away of John Kretzen after a long struggle with cancer. John worked at Optron for ±15 years and technology was his passion. He was well-respected and admired for his enduring commitment to his profession. He loved the company of people and enjoyed his rounds of golf. He made a lasting impression on everyone who had the privilege of meeting him. We are all united in our grief and our memories of his incredible spirit. John will not be forgotten. We offer our sincere condolences to John’s family in their time of grief. Rest in peace,
dear friend.
