A HOWICK family are mourning the death of their son, Sashin Sathipersad (20), who died after a car accident at the corner of Chapel and Victoria Road last Thursday.

His uncle, Naresh Ramnarayan, said his nephew’s death is a great loss because he was always full of smiles and he still had a lot to live for. “My nephew was a very jovial and cheerful person who will be remembered by everyone who knew him by his big smile,” said Ramnarayan.

He said Sathipersad was a passenger in a bakkie driven by his cousin, Nivash Ramnarayan. “They were driving on Victoria Road, going towards Chapel Street, when at that intersection three vehicles were involved in an accident.”

Sathipersad was conscious when he left the scene of the accident in an ambulance, he said. A couple of hours later they were told that he had died. Ramnarayan said he not only lost a nephew, but also a valuable and dedicated employee of his company, All About Bolts.

Sathipersad is survived by his mother, two brothers and grandmother.
