Morry Hyman, Godfather of St Leger Emile

Morry Hyman, godfather of St. Leger Emile van Heerden and dear friend of Lucretia Martha Potgieter. He used to work as a manger at a bottle store on the corner of Deville Street and Du Toit Street, Langlaagte. The Bottle store was on the southern entrance of the Langlaagte Station. Morry was my mother's friend for many years but always in the back ground and always available to help her if and when she needed help. He was one of the gentlest persons I know. He lived in an apartment centre of Johannesburg. A lover of big fancy American cars. He died in 1970 or 1971 of cancer at the Rosettenville Hospital, Johannesburg
