Very sad day for South Africa bonsai community

Post  Jaco Kriek on Thu Apr 21, 2011 8:43 am

It is with great sadness that I announce that one of South Africa’s great bonsai personalities passed away yesterday. Louis Nel, who was known in world bonsai circles, was run over by a car while jogging early in the morning. We will miss him greatly!

Louie Nel R.I.P

I am saddened to report of Louie Nel's passing. I did not know him that long (in bonsai terms ) but in the time that I did he really seemed like a fine man and a tremendous asset to South African bonsai and to global bonsai. I loved his sense of humor and his irreverent outlook.

It was reported he was killed by a car while he was jogging.
I hope he did not suffer and I will think of him and his family in my prayers.

Shocked and really saddened by the passing away of Louis Nel. I have for long admired his trees and the pic that is posted in this thread is my fav and an inspiration... Never knew him personally, but his work has always been of his standards. I am sure that this is a great loss of South African Bonsai.... and to the world of Bonsai at large..

Sad
