HASSELMAN. DIRK died on Friday, April 9, in his beloved Malta. He died after a very long illness which had gradually taken its toll. His wife, Candida, is totally distraught as are his grown-up children Paula, Karen, Robert and Robert’s wife, Leontien.  Paula’s boys Tobias, David and Frits; and Robert and Leontien’s daughters Julia and Annabel will also dearly miss their wonderfully humorous and brightly intelligent grandpa. There is a deep void in all our lives and hearts which will never be filled again. Dirk will be buried at sea on Friday, April 23. However, due to COVID-19 regulations the ceremony will be a small family occasion. No flowers please, but donations to Sir Anthony Mamo Oncology Centre would be most welcome.
