Vantil has been a wonderful friend and colleague for me over the past 18 years.
We have traveled together, eaten together, discussed climate change, cars, global economics, football, and life.
In every conversation, every interaction, Vantil brought deep intelligence, kindness and humour. He shared his love of family, his pride in his children, and his focus on living a full and committed life.
His smile and his laugh will forever inform my world.
For those closest to him, I can only imagine the pain of loss, and can only wonder at the gifts he must have brought to you.
All my love,
