Dear Sau San,
Another sad news about the loss of a very amiable Kirkbyite. Chan Swee Seng
from my batch (1954-56) passed away peacefully on 31 December 2011.
I went to the wake on Saturday 7 January and met his wife and three sons. I
expressed condolences  on behalf of all Kirkbyites especially those from
the 4th batch. The late Chan was a true blue Kirkbyite. His son told me he
requested to be dressed in the blazer with the Kirkby College crest.  He
looked  very peaceful.  May his soul rest in peace.
Anyone who wishes to convey a condolence message can email his son Vincent
Chan at
I would be grateful if you could post this message in the Kirkbyites
website.  Thank you.
Kind regards,
Zainal Arshad
