THE late Johnson Seeto was labelled as a man who reflected his love and respect for nature.

The former University of the South Pacific lecturer passed away last week after a short illness.

The renowned marine curator was laid to rest in Suva yesterday in front of his family members, friends and workmates.

Eldest brother Dixon Seeto who spoke on behalf of his family said they had now learnt from his followers on Facebook that there were many famous photos that reflected his love and respect for the nature.

"The grasshopper, the fly drinking water (his last posted photo), the water drops, the eclipse of the sun and the moon, our mother's orchids and flowers in her garden, butterflies, ships in Suva Harbour," he said.
