Building up a large civil practice, he took silk in 1946, and in 1955
was elevated to the Bench. With his wide experience, his patent
honesty of purpose, his keen mind and his natural courtesy, he made
an admirable judge in whom the profession had great confidence.
He was struck down in the flower of his life.
Simon Meyer Kuper will be deeply missed in several spheres -
in the world of the law, in Jewish communal affairs in which he
played so prominent a part, in the large circle of his personal friends.
To his stricken wife, daughter and sons perhaps some consolation
can be drawn from the thought that Simon Meyer Kuper was greatly
loved by so many. His memory will abide. For, in Samuel Butler's
poignant lines,
Yet meet we shall, and part, and meet again,
Where dead men meet, on lips of living men.'
On Tuesday, 19th February, 1963, the Appellate Division paid
tribute to the memory of the late Benjamin Arthur Tindall, formerly
a member of the Court, who died on 2nd February.
The Chief Justice (the Hon. Mr. Justice L. C. Steyn) and eight
members of the Appellate Division were on the Bench; and by invita-
tion there were also present the Judge-President of the Orange Free
State Provincial Division and five members of his Court. Many
members of the Bar and Side-Bar attended.
The Chief Justice spoke as follows:
'We are gathered here today to pay our tribute to Ben Tindall,
who died recently during the vacation.
'In a sense, he passed from amongst his colleagues fourteen years
ago, when he retired from this Bench on 1st April, 1949, but he is
not a man to be forgotten.
'He spent a lifetime in the service of justice, in the tasks which
are our nearest concern. He was admitted to the Transvaal Bar in
March, 1903. A conscientious and tireless worker, with a discerning
legal mind, he soon earned for himself the reputation of a lawyer
of undoubted learning and ability, and by the confidence his qualities
inspired, built up a wide and rewarding practice. In the many
important cases in which he figured, there can be no doubt that by his
painstaking industry, which was so unfailingly evident, he contributed
in no small measure to the standard of the work of the courts in
which he appeared.
