IN MEMORIAM - DR ARCHIE NORVAL

* 19 October 1944

† 11 January 2021

The Meat Board of Namibia herewith wishes to extend its heartfelt condolences to the family with the sad news of the passing away of Dr Archie Norval on 11 January 2021. May the Lord give strength and comfort during these bereaved times.   

Dr Norval served on the Meat Board of Namibia board in various capacities of board member, Vice-Chairperson of the Meat Board of Namibia board, Chairperson of the FAN Meat committee, substitute Chairperson and vice-chairperson of the Animal Health Committee since 1 February 2014.

Dr Norval’s great personality and vast experience of the meat industry, especially in the field of animal disease control, accompanied by his extraordinary insight, lead to valuable contributions to the growth of the Namibian meat industry. Amongst others, his efforts to raise the FAN Meat Scheme to new heights and secure additional funding to the Directorate Veterinary Services to maintain Namibia’s access to markets, are acknowledged.  

Dr Norval was a person of integrity, a person who could listen, a person who could debate, but most importantly a person who would try to find a solution to a problem. Dr Norval you may not be with us anymore, but your legacy with us will never be forgotten.

You will be sincerely missed.
