I was not too young to remember this great man. A very humble man. If you met him in person you will know he holds no air about him. A very very smart man. If I have to say who really was the brain behind a lot of what made the successes for Singapore and the main political party. He is it. A man of little words and boast but a rock solid planner and man of far reaching vision.

We owe much to this fellow Singaporean who gave much of himself. A life well lived. He shall be remembered.

A man of substance.
A man of few words.
A man of ingenuity.
A family man.
A true Singaporean.

Then again, not all his ideas were fair, notably Malays in critical SAF positions, that one is very wrong.
