Louis Genade RIP

Unread post by FHV » Mon Jun 11, 2018 6:48 pm

Real Name: Louis Genade
AvCom username(if was a member):
Born: 27 March 1981
Passed away date: 11 June 2018
Details of passing: Passed away in his sleep
Pictures:
Louis our friend passed away suddenly last night. Altough he was not a full size pilot he was well known and close friends with some of the best pilots in the country.

As an RC pilot he was without equal and a giant in the modelling community in more ways than one and was known universally as a big man with a huge heart. He was about to go on an adventure of a lifetime touring the airshow circuit in the UK with me and I was shocked to hear that he passed away in his sleep last night .

"Twiggy" my vriend mag die engele jou dra daar waar die lug skoon en helder is , waar die cross wind nooit waai nie en daar nooit radio interference is nie. RIP my vriend
