Ferdinand Van Veldhoven better known as FERRY, who for many years prior to retiring owned Autoferries based on Los Gigantes Marina, died last night.
Ferry had a hip replacement some time ago and never fully recovered. A coulple of weeks ago locals from the marina were concerned about his health and took him to the Green Clinic. He was diagnosed as having a mild heart attack and was transferred to Candilaria Hospital, where he died last night.
Late afternoon most days Ferry stopped to have a chat with us all at the Dive Centre and to make a fuss of his favourite pal Shakie, our little Yourkshire Terrier, he will be sadly missed by us and all others from the Marina who knew him.
Condolences to his family, from the crew at Losgigantes.com/Los Gigantes Diving CentreI have no funeral details yet. Info will be posted here when it is available.
