I sailed with Fokko when he was Chief Officer on board Asian Explorer ex. Straat Colombo. He was such a nice person and a very understanding superior. The Chinese crew liked him very much. I am sad to hear of his passing and my deepest condolences go to the Monteiro family.

Dear Lesley, Monty, Paul and families.

We couldn't not send our condolences without mentioning a few influences we have from meeting Fokko and the Vanuatu Monteiros.

We live with a few of Fokko's wise words passed through Monty with possible exaggerations, we feel like an extension to the Monteiro family by association. Now the wise words.
* "Stay in the islands as long as you can son, it will be the best years of your life"
* And my favorite three part saying " It's a bacon and egg pie not a quiche. "Always shave away from the base". "Thumps always face backwards son".

We must make mention on how proud Monty is of his father and his heritage. We have been on the receiving end of many Indo infused dishes over the years and Fokko generally gets a grand mention generally followed by a short story of his heritage. Likewise, Fokko was no doubt smiling on the way out equally proud of Monty and the family he has created. Monty and Lenise are idols to their peers.

Upon hearing the news from Monty that Fokko had passed but was leaving on his terms with one last party, we look forward to toasting a few to him when the Vanuatu Monteiros return and promise to keep the party going.

Our Best wishes to you during this time.

Damian, Carla, Archie, Eli and Ila.
