    Sadly, one of our forum members, Rastus, passed away earlier this year, he was 90. (Yes 90 - Not a typo!):(
    Rastus was one of the Sydney, NSW based sim fanatics and was active with the Aussie members and further afield on this forum
    A true gent on the forums and proof, if any were needed, that you are never too old to pick up a screwdriver and soldering iron.

    My condolences to @Rastus family, it is a sad time but the mesure of any life is how fully it is lived and @Rastus certainly did that.

    Of course, I did not know him personally but it was and remains an example for all of us... when passion is true there are no limits!
    Rest in peace @Rastus.

    We only chatted a few times on forums and via PM, but I was staggered when I found out his age via a forum post. He was always eager to learn about the others sims on here. See - You really are never too old!!

    If @Rastus has taught us one thing, the only time we will stop tinkering with these things is when we are no longer around too!!

    RIP @Rastus
