Helmut Hans Zechmeister It is with great sadness that I write of the passing of my dear dad Helmut Zechmeister, last week, aged 79, after a battle with cancer. He is survived by his wife Eleanor and his two children, Richard and Caroline and 5 grandchildren. His funeral, on 31 August, was in his home town in Austria attended by family and friends. A lovely man who lived a rich and varied life, was loved and respected by all and will be greatly missed. Rest In Peace.
