Yes a most unfortunate turn of events. He will be missed. I'm not sure of where he was when he passed, but I have heard it was due to a heart attack.

He certainly played an important role in the slipper world with his tours, lectures and exporting. I enjoyed the few times I got to meet and converse with him.

If there's a slipper heaven, he's there. Rest in peace.

How very sad. I will treasure even more the many plants I have got from Holger over the past couple of years. Rest in Peace Holger.

I couldn't believe the title of this thread first. What an unexpected passing!
My condolences.
