Siva Choy R.I.P. Tribute From Horace Wee 2

A combined record of    
5,400+ viewers to date 
for both tributes.           


This SMS came in later today.

I lost another friend from the 60's today.


Siva Choy, the well-known journalist and musician from Singapore, has passed away from a massive stroke at 2.30 pm today in Perth Australia. His wife Ilsa Sharp, also a renowned journalist mourns the loss. And so do many friends here and in Perth.


Some may recall his series, WHY YOU SO LIKE THAT. He took the name of my previous band CROSSROADS after it disbanded. We had a laugh about that. RIP my friend. Keep rocking on your heaven bound journey.

I live in Perth and would love to pay my respects at his place.
HE kept me entertained and sane through my army days (daze).

My condolences to his family and best wishes to everyone who loved him.

Hi Andy,

Read your blog and sad to hear that Siva Choy passed away yesterday in Perth. Herb and I remember singing with the Cyclones at the golden venus Sunday T-dances and we used to have a friendly rivalry with them. Those were the great times in the 60’s. We like to send our condolences to his family.
