Just received the sad news that Chopper, Thinus Janse van Rensburg, one of our long-standing members, passed away this morning after undergoing hip-replacement surgery. Cause of death seems to have been a blood clot through his lung following this surgery.

Condolences to his family and friends.

RIV Chopper.
Die dood bly altyd 'n skok vir almal wat agterbly. Selfs al het ek hom nie geken nie raak dit aan my, ek onthou sy posts goed. Sal dit mis.
