V. Sivapathasundram, my hockey mentor from Tunku Besar Secondary School passed away this evening at UMCC.

His remains have been brought back to Tampin and the funeral will be held on Tuesday at 2.00pm.

Siva, who was the Hon Secretary of NSHA in the 90’s and also served as Assistant Secretary to the late S. Satgunam in MHF was responsible towards the development and promotion of hockey in Tampin as well as the state of NS.

He will be sorely missed.
