Capetonian – R.I.P.Back to Forum
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!27 Nov 2020
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.27 Nov 2020
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.28 Nov 2020
Thanks for sharing LP. Read the sad news on a my clunky mobile app . don’t normally log on my laptop at the weekend , but want to share my thoughts.
I’ll personally miss capetonianm , his comments balanced the views on the forum and I can only reiterate the fine comments previously made.
