HE was 96 and never missed a single Police Day parade in his 30 years of service in the Royal Malaysia Police Volunteer Reserve (PVR).

Upon mandatory retirement from the force at the age of 55 as the Commandant of the PVR in Penang, the late Superintendent/SP (Rtd) Quah Boon Chuan continued to serve as Advisor in the Persatuan Bekas Sukarelawan Simpanan Polis Pulau Pinang (PBSSPPP) until he drew his last breath in February this year. If this is not the true spirit of volunteerism, I don’t know what is.
