Mihalik was laid to rest in Cape Town yesterday. He died two weeks ago after he was shot outside his children's school.
His son was hurt during the incident, while his daughter managed to flee the car when a shooter on foot opened fire.
Three men have been arrested.

Colin Booysen, who was one of Mihalik’s clients, was also there with his own protection in tow.
Cassidy Mihalik paid a moving tribute to her father, saying he was a generous man.
