UCC : U Kyaw Nyein (GBNF)

  • Saya U Kyaw Nyein (“Bo Kyein”, UCC) taught Numerical Analysis and Numerical Methods.
  • He passed away on February 28, 2011.
  • In his youth, he was active playing soccer and volleyball.
  • His friendly smile will be missed by all.
  • Aging and declining health had a toll on U Kyaw Nyein and his spouse.
  • He had diabetes for a long time without control/treatment.
  • His kidney began to fail around October, 2010. Doctors recommended preparation for dialysis, which is minor operation on his vein/arteries on his hand, but he wanted to try alternative medicine (e.g. Chinese medicine).
  • UCC alumni set up a health care fund to help U Kyaw Nyein, but he was either too “Arr Nar De” or too frail to do dialysis.
  • He lost memory and could not recognize his former colleagues.
  • His wife had limited mobility on her left hand. People in Yangon wanted her to go for therapy but it was not easy for them to visit therapists on their own.

Editor’s Notes (2019) :
