Bongani the Baker

Passionate about baking

For as long as anyone in town can remember, Bongani’s Bakery was the first shop to open and the last to close. Bongani spent his life sharing bread with everyone that came into his shop. He loved nothing more than to sit right outside his shop and feed the pigeons and everyone will remember Bongani as a landmark on 3rd Avenue.

Before he passed, Bongani arranged his own funeral to celebrate his love of baking, he wanted a casket that was shaped like a loaf of bread in memory of all the people that he broke bread with and all the friends he made in his bakery. At Happy Funerals we celebrate life and we understand that anyone would want to be remembered the way that they were, and we are here to do just that.
