The GBNF list for the Alumni of RIT and UCC has grown over the years since I started the updates.
Saya U Soe Paing (EE, UCC) wrote :
Ko Kyaw Nyein (UCC) passed away because of heart failure. He was not feeling well and was going downstairs for the toilet when he collapsed. They took him to RGH and he passed away in the emergency room.
The funeral is at 2:00 pm local time at Htein Bin (other side of Hlaing River). 10 lakhs have been given out for funeral expenses and rest of the funds will be given to the remaining family.
- Grapevine says that Saya U Tin Hlaing (M59) could not get access to a dialysis machine and passed away before he could get passport and visa to get medical treatment abroad. At that time there were only two dialysis machines and they were reserved for VIPs.
- UCC alums set up a “Health Care Fund” to help Ko Kyaw Nyein and other UCC alums with medical problems. It’s sad to lose a brilliant, kind-hearted colleague.
- The GBNF for UCC alums include Saya Dr. Tin Maung, Saya U Ko Ko Lay, CO U Hla Min (EP70), Saya U Mya Thein, U Khin Maung Aye (M73), U Shein Soe Myint (EC83), U Aung Aung Thein (EE8x), U Hla Aye (Bhaimyar), Daw Win May Thaung, Daw Kyu Kyu Lwin, Daw Hla Hla Win, Daw Khin Lay Myint and U Soe Myint.
