It is with profound regret and with much sadness that we report the recent demise of an icon in pharmaceutical education in South Africa. Michael or simply Mike (the name by which he was fondly known) Perkin passed away on 16 November 2020 aged 77 years. A memorial service was conducted by Pastor Scott Tubman at the Durbanville Memorial Park Chapel on 25 November 2020. He is survived by his wife, Barbara, and extended family. On behalf of the entire pharmaceutical profession, we extend to his heartbroken wife, son, daughters and grandchildren our heartfelt sympathy and deepest condolences in this irreparable loss.
