CANCER-stricken former otak-otak seller Khoo Lian Choon has died.
The 68-year-old passed away peacefully at the Batu Gajah Hospital palliative care unit on Saturday at about 6pm.
An assistant of Perak executive council member and Pasir Pinji assemblyman Howard Lee, who declined to be named, said Khoo died without suffering.
“I was with him the whole time prior to his last breath. He died peacefully,” he added.
It was reported that Lee had urged Khoo’s family to return home to see him last month, as their consent was needed for his treatment.
However, none of his immediate kin visited him.
Khoo was diagnosed with stage four cancer, which had spread from his lungs to his brains.
The assistant said Khoo’s friends have arranged for his funeral.
“Khoo had asked his friends to take care of the arrangements prior to his passing.
“At the funeral, only five of his friends were there,” he said.
“He will be cremated at the Kek Look Seah Crematorium, while his ashes will be placed at the Greeneries Memorial Park in Taiping,” he added. — IVAN LOH
