It is with a tremendous feeling of loss that we’ve learnt of the death of J.J. Adams, (Boeta Koos), as he was affectionately known to many in pigeon racing circles. The Federated Board of Homing Unions lost one of its pioneers, one of its best known citizens and a great fancier who had a lot to do with the shaping of the F.B.H.U. in the last 50 years. His death followed a long illness, and although not unexpected, it came as a severe shock to many in every walk of life.
His dedication to the organization where he raced his birds with such astuteness will serve as a beacon of inspiration to all of us he left behind. We will honor his memory in striving to build the Federated Board which he served so diligently for so many years, into the organization he dreamt of.
Our heartfelt condolences to his wife, family and friends, long will he be remembered and his name will be whispered with admiration and affection in the corridors of the F.B.H.U. which he served with such distinction, for many years to come.
