We salute Brig Mauritz "Happy" Schutte who was born on 4 September 1951, but was called for higher duties to be with his Lord and Saviour, our God Almighty on 9 October 2019, succumbing to the illness of cancer. He executed his duties on earth to his family, while in service of the SAPS and while on retirement with honour, commitment, dedication and love. He respected and treated everyone the same, immaterial of who they were - with respect, dignity, professionalism and friendliness - but firm, strict, no nonsense when need be. I never ever saw him angry. He had strong Christian beliefs and strong principles … from which he refused to divert.
