    I don’t know if anyone knows, but I just had news from his son, that Capetonian passed away in July.

    Thanks to the Forum we got to know each other and became friends. He even visited me with his wife at our home on the Reserve in South Africa. We were often in WhatsApp and email correspondence – though as others who know me, know, that my response time to emails is rather slow, as was his!!!

    I shall miss him as I’ll miss his good humour, wit and sometimes controversial posts 😉

    RIP Capetonian as you continue your travels in the great beyond!

    Such sad news, I found he contributed a lot with his own particular view of the world (South Africa especially) and I often agreed with him. Hopefully he didn’t suffer and his family are coping and coming to terms with their loss. I shall miss him.

    Sad loss, he broadened my mind, especially about South Africa as SGJNI1961 said. I also hope that he had a peaceful end. RIP

    So very sad to hear. I too had been missing his posts and in fact was intending to email Tom asking if he had any news of Capetonian.I enjoyed his witty often pithy posts and updates on SA. Sincere condolences to his family and friends………..the forum will be poorer for his passing.
