IN MEMORIAM

THE LATE SGT ANTHONY KUAN YEW BEE RMAF
30 JULY 1950 - 24 SEPTEMBER 2021

The Late SGT ANTHONY KUAN YEW BEE RMAF (703053), 71 years old, a member of MACVA and a veteran of the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) passed away peacefully on Friday 24 September 2021. MACVA members accorded a befitting MACVA Military Last Rite to the Late Sgt Anthony Kuan Yew Bee RMAF on Sunday 26 September 2021 at 11.00am at the Holy Family Catholic Church Kajang, Selangor.

The Late Sgt Anthony Kuan was born in Selangor on 30 July 1950. He was enlisted into the RMAF on 16 July 1969. He took an early retirement on 16 July 1985 after 16 years of service to join the private sector. He married Mdm Lim Bee Lian, a teacher during the service and they are blessed with two successful children Peter Kuan Yik Hai and Janet Kuan Yik Peng.

Upon retirement from RMAF, The Late Sgt Anthony Kuan joined Airod Sdn Bhd, an internationally recognised Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul Aviation Company established in Malaysia in January 1985. He was one of the early batches of aircraft technicians from RMAF to join the Airod Sdn Bhd. He retired from Airod Sdn Bhd upon reaching the compulsory retirement age of 55 years old in 2005.

Peter Kuan Yik Hai said his Late father was a very fit guy and was enjoying his well-deserved retirement by keeping his fitness and trimmed physique through brisk walking, jogging, hiking, travelling to visit places he liked and enjoyed meeting up with friends over coffee. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with skin cancer in May 2020 and in early September 2021, he fell into a monsoon drain due to imbalance caused by the brain tumor during his morning brisk walking and was bedridden until his demise on Friday 24 September 2021.

MACVA extends its deepest condolences and sympathy to Mdm Lim Bee Lian and the family members.

NC MPMA Wheelchair Assistane To Cpl Tan Yow Fatt RMAF
25 Aug 21

Our Veteran brother, Cpl Tan Yow Fatt RMAF (SN:705581), age 66 have served the RMAF as an Armourer for nearly 15 years including resettlement. He was based in Kuantan & Butterworth.

Brother Tan was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2016. He also suffered from Parkinson's disease. Unfortunately, his sickness has now further developed into acute myeloma leukaemia. Presently, he feels very weak and unable to walk on his own and at the same time suffers from loss of appetite.

Due to his inability to walk, Tan had requested NC assistance for a wheelchair for his family member to assist his movement. As such, under our MPMA programme which was permanently in placed since last year, a wheelchair was arranged through Peace & Harmony (P&H) Home in Gelugor, Penang where NC had an arrangement with the home to provide hospital equipments requested for our Veteran or family members in need throughout the whole Northern Region.

Upon request this afternoon, a wheelchair was immediately arranged with Mr Tan Swee Ban, Principal of P&H Home. It was handed over to his wife Mdm Khoo Saw Then at P&H Home this afternoon as Tan was getting discharged from GH Penang after one week admission and he needed the wheelchair.

NC would like to extend its profound gratitudes to P&H Home and Mr Tan SB for the home's solid backing in line with our Mobility Assistance programme.
