Former President Wee Kim Wee passed away this morning

ChannelNewsAsia, Obituary: Former Singapore President Wee Kim Wee, 1915 - 2005
Singapore's former President, Wee Kim Wee, has died at the age of 89.

Dr Wee, the country's president from 1985 to 1993, is best remembered for being a People's President and for his common touch...

...He became President in 1985, determined to make the Presidency as accessible as possible to ordinary Singaporeans.

His genuine concern for others and natural warmth touched many lives...

First heard it on the radio this morning.
