It is with immense sadness that I share the news of the passing of Gabriel Theron (Gawie) Fagan with you.
Gawie was in his own bed which he made as a student, in his bedroom filled with the books of knowledge that informed his work, surrounded by the objects and the people who gave meaning to his life, in “Die Es”, the house which he designed and crafted with the help of his family.
Gwen, his great love, who had been his companion and support throughout their long and fulfilling life together, tenderly cared for him during the past few difficult months.
In the days, weeks and months to come we will find embracing ways to celebrate his life and work, but for now our thoughts are with Gwen, their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
He was an inspiration to us all; a great man who lived a life of integrity, adventure, peace and humility and who had the greatest respect for all and everything. May he now also rest in peace.
It is with great sadness that we’ve learnt of the passing of Gawie Fagan. We consider Gawie as one of the biggest trees in the heritage forest – a gold medal winner, winner of numerous other awards, both local and international, both as a conservationist and architect. Gawie was also a previous council member of the Simon van der Stel Foundation. His influence and contribution to heritage conservation was truly immense.
For Gwen Fagan who supported and cared for Gawie go our sincere condolences and gratitude. Gwen has lost a lifelong companion and like all in conservation, an inspiration and role model.
We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
