The untimely and tragic passing of Aloysius Pang has hit many hard, especially his colleagues who had experienced first-hand his kind and generous nature. When interviewed by Ch 8 news, Aloysius’ former co-stars Chen Shucheng and Carrie Wong tearfully recounted the thoughtful things he had done for them. Meanwhile, Aloy’s buddy Ian Fang recalled details of their touching friendship and the projects Aloy had planned for them.
Aloysius was seriously injured during a reservist stint in New Zealand, and passed away from his injuries after four days of intensive care in the hospital. Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen announced that a Republic of Singapore Air Force KC-135 plane has been dispatched to New Zealand at 2.30am today (January 25) to bring Aloy’s body home. There will be a private wake for Aloy’s family tomorrow morning (January 26), and fans and friends who wish to pay their last respects can do so at the public wake from January 26, 12pm, to January 27, 12pm.
