It is with deep sorrow that I’m writing this letter to inform you all that Tara Singh (1959-1960) had passed away. Shan from PD rang me up this morning (Thursday, 13 April 2006) to draw my attention to the Obituary in The Star. Later I found out that the same Obituary appeared in the NST as well.
1960, together with some of our Juniors they toured
never met him after college, though I had tried my best to contact him. Some
years ago I learnt that he was the Secretary of the Sikh temple in Malacca. I
managed to get the address of the temple and wrote to
Last year he visited Cheng Swee and Lean Aing and complained that he had been left out in our gatherings. I got his handphone number from Lean Aing and unsuccessfully called him several times. I sent him a sms but he did not respond. I called his home and was told by his wife that he had gone to Malacca to play golf. I left a message with his wife – again there was no response.
The Obituary did not say when he passed away. It merely stated that he passed away suddenly and that his funeral was 0n the morning of 13 April 2006. We can presume that he must have passed away the previous day.
He leaves behind his wife, two sons and a daughter.
May his soul rest in peace.
For those who may want to contact the family, the address is:
5 Jalan Putra Bistari 2/1R,
Take care and keep well.
With very warm regards,
