Patrol held in honour of Ward

Table View neigbourhood watch (TVNW) will have an honour patrol to pay respect for Ian Ward, founder of community radio station One FM, who died on Thursday 5 September.

Ward was a member of TVNW and a community activist. He died of lung cancer.

The patrol, taking place on Thursday 12 September at 19:00, will start at the parking lot in front of Doodles and finish at Ward’s house where those who wish can leave a token of honour.

Tributes poured in on social media after his death, with many expressing their shock and sadness. They described him as a legend, a pillar of the community and someone who made a huge difference in the community.

Lianne Ekermans said: “RIP Ian, you fought this battle with smiles, love and dignity. It is time you too rest eternally. Stacey and Tristan, I am so sorry for your loss. Keep up the hard work with the station and make Ian proud.”

David Morrison said he was shocked and saddened by the news of Ward’s passing.

“One FM will live on as testament to his vision and in his memory. All of the youngsters you opened doors for, and gave opportunities to, are also testament to your vision, and part of your legacy.”

Walter Dellis said: “Ian Ward was a radio legend ... His fight against cancer was hard-fought and brave.”

One FM presenters also did their bit in remembering Ward, as most did a tribute to him as part of their shows.

Christo Cilliers, one of the presenters at One FM said: “We have lost a beautiful soul that cared a lot for the community.”
