Rest in Peace Dr Peter Kapoor

We are very sad to inform members and well wishers about lose of one of our valued member and a former trustee of the South Asian Society, Dr Peter Kapoor. Those who knew Peter, would remember him as a very loving and caring person and always wanted to do the right thing. He started his career in Merchant Navy and then worked as a lecturer in Plymouth University. He was employed by the United Nations and worked in a number of countries. He was an entrepreneur and started his own business but due to health issues could not continue. He joined South Asian Society as a proactive PK Oct 2005Trustee and wanted to do more for the society but his health could not allow him to do so therefore he had to gradually step back. In the last few years he was diagnosed with IPF and as a result his health deteriorated over the course of time and Peter left us on 19th of June at his home with his wife and daughter beside him. May God bless his soul and rest in peace after fighting with ill health and we will always remember him as a true, gentle and hardworking man.

The funeral will be held on 30th June at Weston Mill at 1430, everybody is welcome.
