Terrible news. He was a good friend to me and I shall greatly miss our chats. He was gentle, generous, patient and willing to share his immense knowledge. My heart goes out to Jennifer.
First it was orchids, then, since c.2001, cacti and succulents. I'm into South African plants, mainly conos, lithops and haworthias, with a few cacti, especially 'posh' mamms, turbs and other smalls. Now it’s stapeliads as well...

I had the great fortune of being one of the few to see his collection last year during the pandemic. He was an amazing guy who was very knowledgeable, accommodating and kind. I was there for quite a few hours chatting with him and looking at his many plants. We were planning to see his collection again in March to see Massonias and other winter/spring plants.

He will be missed and I am glad I have something of his to remember him by.
