I am shocked and saddened by his sudden demise, he was such a humble guy, always smiling and cheerful. Eventhough I knew him for a short period.

May his soul rest in peace.

I worked with him for more than 5 years and have known him for about 13 years...Yes he has always been a kind, humble, patient, understanding and a good listener. He has lived a very meaningful life and left firm footprints in many individuals....
May his soul rest in peace.
