In remembrance: Jonathan Taylor

06 December 2018 | The UCT Executive

Dear colleagues and students

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the death of Mr Jonathan Taylor (54) who passed away on 2 December 2018.

Mr Taylor was employed in the Grounds and Gardens section of Properties and Services. He started working at UCT in 2009 with The Green Perspective and thereafter was employed by Turfworks until he was insourced as a permanent staff member in 2016.

He has been described as a dedicated, well-loved and hard-working colleague who never shied away from going the extra mile. He will be sorely missed by all who knew and worked with him.

Mr Taylor leaves behind his wife, two sons, a daughter, his parents and five siblings.

Grounds and Gardens will hold a memorial service for Mr Taylor at 12:00 on Monday, 10 December 2018, in the Richard Luyt room in the Otto Beit Building on upper campus. Funeral details are yet to be finalised.
