Linton Rensburg posted on Facebook, ‘‘Today, Covid-19 came to remind me and many of my comrades and friends of my generation, once again about its indiscriminate deadliness. It’s ability to shock and awe is once again demonstrated with the news of the passing of Dr Louis Scheepers We met in the 80’s whilst you lived in Belhar and you an active member of the Belhar Civic Organisation, while studying at UWC, me a student at UCT, and we became friends and student activists during those difficult years of our national democratic struggle. Later on, we got to work together professionally, you at the Garden Route District Municipality in George and me as the regional representative of GCIS in the district (Government Communications). Memories came back on how you introduced me on countless times to the political and sporting fraternity in the Garden Route. Later on, I had the privilege of working with you whilst you were in Saldanha Bay as Municipal Manager and after that also whilst you occupied various other senior positions in local government. I watched you grow into becoming one of our country’s top local government specialists. You inspired so many with your commitment to lifelong learning and it was especially pleasing to see how you completed your doctoral studies and also became an Adjunct Professor at the School of Governance at your Alma Mater UWC in your field of expertise. I will forever treasure our discussions on politics, sport and especially your views on SA Rugby. But, over and above everything you were a family man and my heart goes out to your wife Penny, your children and family at large. Rus sag my vriend!”
