In the News
January 23,1949 – August 2, 2014
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Professor Chris Heyns on August 2, 2014 at the age of 65.
Prof. Heyns was President of the South African Urological Association and Past President of the Société Internationale d'Urologie (SIU). He had been an active member of the SIU since 1994. Prof. Heyns was an eminent urologist who was known for his wisdom and tireless dedication to improve urology worldwide. No matter how busy Chris Heyns was in his practice, he always had time to help SIU.
It is with heartfelt sympathy that we extend our sincere condolences to Prof. Heyns’ family, friends and colleagues everywhere. Prof. Heyns will be missed dearly by all who knew him, and will be remembered for his commitment to international urology and his passion for politics and literature.
“Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence… As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons; speak your truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others… With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy.”
– Desiderata, by Max Ehrmann, 1927 (one of Chris Heyns' favourite passages)
