Mr Trevor Ras (Franco) died in hospital on 3 August at about 5.15pm after losing his brain function recovery battle.
Mr Ras sustained severe injuries in an accident on the Secunda Road on 3 June when his vehicle collided with a stray animal and another motorist crashed into him.
The injuries included skull fracture, broken ribs and fractures of the hip and pelvis.

“The service at both hospitals was excellent,” his father, Mr Alberto Franco, said.
Mr Ras had not suffered from any infection.
