Werner Helmut ("Bert") Tromp (Bass 1)
Born August 3rd 1931, Harburg, Germany
Died March 1st 2015, Adelaide
A member since July 1981, Werner filled many positions on the choir's committee over the years, including treasurer and trustee. He was always willing to "put his shoulder to the wheel" when asked. His significant contributions to the choir were acknowledged with a silver award pin in January 2001.
Werner possessed a very dry sense of humour, and would often come out with dead-pan one-liners which would break up an otherwise dull meeting. His health deteriorated significantly in recent years, but he would still attend practices whenever possible. His cheerful presence will be missed.
