    I don't believe, what a loss to the fish keeping community.

    My condolences to the family.

    He was a true gentleman, one of the friendliest most helpful men I ever knew.

    I feel sorry for his children, his youngest child is only about 5 or 6, such a shame.

    Not much more I can say, I hope I speak on behalf of all the East Londoners who had the pleasure of doing business with him and his son. Real sorry to hear of his untimely passing. Always had the most friendly service and advice from him.

    Good bye to a great man!
