I was just looking through some of my old photos from the time I was a chef on a yacht in Monaco when Bat chartered the boat for three weeks back in 1997. We had a fantastic time while he was on board and although I was working as part of the crew Bat made sure that we enjoyed the time as much as he and his guests.
I looked him up on google out of curiosity and I'm so sorry to hear that he has passed away.
I still tell people a very funny story that he told us from his days on the tuna boats.
He had some very nice friends who came with him, including his son Andy. I'm very sorry for your loss. He was a very warm, generous and funny man and I can only imagine how much you must miss him..
