REGARDED as one of the country's top marine educator, Johnson Seeto has passed away after a short illness.

A senior academic and curator at the Division of Marine Studies at the USP, Mr Seeto passed away at the Suva Private Hospital.

His brother Dixon Seeto said his brother, who was number four out of the eight siblings, was passionate about his work and would help his students learn more and be passionate too about their studies.

"He was very popular with his students. He had a personal unique style of interacting with his students," Mr Seeto said.

The cortege will leave the Suva Private Hospital tomorrow at 10am and will make a final journey past his home before travelling to Suva Chinese Cemetery for burial.

He is survived by his mother and seven siblings, four sisters-in-law and two nephews and two nieces.
