May his soul rest in eternal peace and may his loved ones find comfort in the memories he left behind.
He was such a nice man. I hv nice memories of him coming over for dinner even tho my cooking wasnt great when i was only in my mid teens during the mid 80's. He'd say his fave was the potato/carrot/onion/veggie soup cooked with chicken meat and a bit of rosemary. siiighh... those were the years past. He'd always bring a smile to me with his well-mannered ways and i had a nickname for him at the time. :D

He'll always be remembered...

Rest in Peace my friend Robert Lam. Its a shock to hear this.
My deepest condolences to his family.

I knew Robert personally since the mid 80's and used to bump into him at Carrefour on a few occasions I was there shopping for groceries and always a couple of minutes of chit chat.

Sad to hear this, very sad.

RIP my friend. Thanks for the lessons in some English pronounciations too... will never forget those!

p.s. those early days, Robert was a regular supporter of one obscure rojak / cendol mobile stall located just next to the playground between USJ4/6 and USJ4/9 and USJ3 area...

Nice man indeed. I remember him telling us that one time he was stopped by a policeman as he was going slightly above legal speed limit. Then when the policeman saw him when Robert wind down the window, he asked Robert: "Nak pergi baca new ke?" He just sheepishyl nodded and the policeman let him go..haha.. This was almost 20 years ago, when he dropped by at my English tuition class. His son was only about 3-4 years old..

Rest In Peace Robert.

His beautiful mellow voice is still fresh in my head. Yes, he can sing and strum the guitar pretty well. That was like more than 20 years ago when I heard him sing in a mutual friend's house party.

The late John Machado, Bosco D'Cruz and now Robert Lam. All of them recognised as men with THE golden voices. Old farts of my generation's gonna miss them. Together with the 'voice of god' Patrick Teoh, they're definitely the Heavenly Kings of the local broadcasting world!
