    Hi everyone,

    It brings me a great deal of pain to have to bear such terrible news. Our fellow friend and reefer Johan Van Aardt passed away early on Monday morning. I do not know any of the details, as my only connection with him was through reefkeeping.


    Below is the post his brother made, as I know many of the Cape Townians will want to attend his memorial.

    "Hi all, this is not Johan, I am his brother, and regret that I have to bring you this tragic news, Johan passed away early on monday morning, The memorial service will be held on thursday at 12 in the morning at the NG church table view."


    It is a tragedy to have lost such a young and kind member of our community, and I know he will be remembered for his generosity and willingness to lend a helping hand to those around him.


    Regards,
    Dane
