Another Great Loss

I have recently received news that Mr. Ooi Boo Chuan, an Old Free which passed away yesterday evening while having a game of hockey in Ipoh. Mr Ooi is in the Board Of Governors and also one of the committee members in the Old Frees Assosiation Penang, I think he was the President of the OFA for year 2004/2005.

From what I heard, his cause of death is due to an arteriole block which cause heart failure while playing hockey. The news of his death was very unexpected as he was known as a fit and healthy guy. He was very active in sports during his schooling days and still is active in various games such as badminton and golf. He was an active scout in 7th Georgetown South and was the Troop Leader.

He is known for his endless dedication to the Grand Old Lady and it is a great loss to us Frees. His love and dedication for the school truly represents a true Free. Sorry for the inaccuracy of certain details, because as for me, I barely know him but my godfather which is an Old Free himself knows him. My condolences to his family and close friends. You may contact the Old Frees Association for further details.

He has a son and a nephew which is of course currently studying in a school, which school u ask? where else if it is not Penang Free School.
