R.I.P. Barry Jonker

Barry was on the outskirts of unihoki in Johannesburg.
He was friends with Jason, one of our main players, and popped in to watch a couple of times.
Eventually the bug bit and he bought himself a uni and set about learning to ride.
Jason tells me he finally ‘got it’ quite recently.
A couple of days before he was T-boned by a car speeding thru a red light and killed instantly.

That’s one less of us.

Very sorry to hear that. My condolences to his family and friends.


Was he riding his uni while hit?

My apologies for being vague.

No, he was driving his car.

:frowning: I’m really sorry to hear this. Apologies for my lack of words, I don’t really know how to respond to something like this at my young age.

People really need to be more careful in cars. My father had a friend who died from a drunk driver. Sadly these type of situations are very common anymore.

My condolences to you, Dave, at the loss of your friend.
