PETALING JAYA: The Star’s former graphic technician Raja Nadasan (pic), a veteran of more than 30 years, died yesterday after a two-year battle with cancer. He was 58.
Raja joined The Star as a teletype operator in 1978 when the newspaper was based in Jalan Travers and went on to various positions in the company as chief paste-up artist and chief graphic technician before retiring in 2011.
As chief graphic technician, he had a sharp eye for detail and was a stickler for accuracy. With his many years of experience, he also mentored young sub-editors, especially in page design and in sports, where his knowledge was immense.
He leaves behind wife Meenachi and six daughters.
The cortege will leave his house at No. 580A, Block C2, Sri Pahang Flats, in Jalan Bukit Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur at 2pm today for cremation at the Cheras crematorium.
