It is with great sadness that we are announcing the passing of CIC member, Stefan Bertele.
Emmanuel La Roche, Head of the Swiss CIC Delegation and a personal friend of Mr. Bertele, wrote the following obituary following his passing.
“I have the sad duty to inform you that the CIC and myself have lost a very valuable, faithful and cheerful comrade.
Stefan Bertele first joined the CIC in 1973, and was therefore one of our longest standing members. As long as he was in good health, he was actively involved in CIC activities, with his last involvement being the General Assembly in Montreux, 2017. For him, the General Assembly in Tehran, 1974, was a particular highlight that he was able to experience.
But my friendship with the deceased is much older. I knew him for 50 years, and though we never hunted together, we shared many CIC stories.
Stefan will be greatly missed by the Swiss delegation and especially me.”
