Babu Ram Narain Singh was born in Nasinu, Fiji and died at Royal Brisbane Hospital 9 November 2017. He was cremated at Albany Creek Crematorium in Brisbane on 15 November, 2017.
Mr Singh was born into a family of 3 sisters and 3 brothers and he was the second youngest in the family. All his siblings are deceased – except his youngest brother, Dr Jag Narain Singh, a retired medical professional, who lives in Perth, WA. His parents, late Babu Khalak Dhari Singh and late Mrs Ram Kali Singh were both born in India and came to Fiji under the Indenture System (Girmit).
Mr Singh was charismatic person and a perfect gentleman who leaves behind a legacy of simpleness, hard-work, love and giving. We pray to the Almighty for his celestial Soul to Rest in Peace. He will always be remembered by his wife Mrs Nancy Singh along with all his children, grand-children and other families.
Mr Singh has been a pioneer of the Fiji Indian community settled in Brisbane, a highly respected and humble gentleman, a pillar of strength for the community, he will be surely missed but always remembered for his contributions to the community. How can one ever forget the ever smiling face?
