RANSOME, Andrew:

ANDREW2 RANSOME (GLENN1) was born 22 August 1979. He is the son of JOYCE ANNETTE8 FLEMMER (JOHN 'JACK' SWEET DISTIN7, JOHN DISTIN6, CHRISTIAN LUDVIG5) born 30 May 1946. She married GLENN CAMPBELL RANSOME. He was born 23 September 1946.

I am Andrew Ransome. I was born in Johannesburg on 22nd August 1979. I grew up in Randpark Ridge, Randburg. I attendee Randpark Primary School, then Allen Glen High School, followed by Parktown College where I did business studies.

I am the middle child of my parents Joyce Annette Flemmer and Glen Campbell Ransome. My siblings are Suzette and Michelle Ransome. I grew up in our lovely home in Randpark, Randburg.

I love the outdoors and was sent on many adventure holidays. I enjoyed the camping, hiking, canoeing and fun these entailed. My parents have been a pillar of support in teaching me how to look after myself, and all the love they have shown me will stand me in good stead for the rest of my life. 

I attained my Amateur Radio Operator's licence at 14 years old, and enjoyed communicating with other ham radio enthusiasts.

I worked as an irrigation manager for 2 years, then received a 2 month contract to do irrigation in Mauritius. Island life was enjoyable, but I was pleased to return to South Africa when the contract was up. I now have my own irrigation business, and hope to grow it in the coming years.
