Default In Memoriam: Tog Tan

Tog Tan, known to many members of the IBS as an indespensable font of banana and tropical knowledge, passed away on 16 June 2009 of a heart attack, while driving home with a new load of bananas and other plants. He died doing what he loved.

He is survived by his daughter Stefanie and all of his friends here at the International Banana Society. We will all rembember him for his great sense of humour, his patience, his amazing breadth of knowledge, and his willingness to help anybody with a question.

Tog, you will be sorely missed.
