Paul Sulcas z”l

By his daughter, Gabi Nudelman

Paul Sulcas, who passed away in Cape Town on 10 September 2021, was different things to the people whose lives he touched.

He was an accomplished academic – an educator, doctor, professor, and past Dean of UCT’s Graduate School of Business. He worked in industry as a consultant and mediator, supporting the growth of private and public sector organisations. He was a culture fundi, with keen appreciation for the visual arts, music, and the live arts. He was a talented sportsman who excelled in athletics, rugby, squash and golf. He was a community man who shared his time and expertise with a number of organisations and individuals in the Jewish community. Underpinning all of these was his role as a family man. He was the most present and committed husband, father, grandfather, brother, son, uncle and cousin.

Paul is deeply mourned and missed by all who crossed his path. He taught us to draw the most from our experiences. He appreciated the colours in every sunset, the skill of every performer, and the unique combination of harmonies in every aria. He was accomplished, but never boastful; confident, but never vain; satisfied, but never smug. Paul made choices that enabled him to live his very best life, socially, professionally, intellectually and communally. His legacy lies in the example he leaves behind.

The late Paul Sulcas was a stalwart of our community. He was one of the founding members of the CSO and is a Past Chairman of Staffwise. He also served on the Board of Deputies and was always available to assist any of our communal bodies.
