GUIDO SOHNE: 1973 – 2008
The story of an amazing life ……….
Guido was an amazing person. But most of us, especially his immediate family, only learned about the true extent and nature of his achievements after he passed away about a month ago. Such was his modesty and sense of values, as indeed the many tributes to him have so succinctly underscored.
He was born on Wednesday, 23rd May 1973 to William and Genevieve Sohne and christened William Guido but it was by his middle name that everyone came to know him. He had his elementary education at the Christ The King International School in Cantonments and did well enough at the Common Entrance Examination that he was admitted to Achimota School in 1985 on full scholarship as one of the top five entrants.
While in Form 2 the family acquired a computer, an Amstrad PCW8256, which was to launch Guido onto a lifelong journey of adventure and discovery.
