It is with great shock and sorrow that we heard of the passing away of Sqn Ldr Baldev Singh (Retd) to-day – 11 Oct 11.
A thorough professional, having for long been the CTP and an executive Director at HAL, he had just a few months ago been made a full time Director at HAL.
Baldy, to the whole Marut fraternity – those who long knew him and those who just met him – will be fondly remembered for his professionalism, sincerity and gentle manners. He played the gracious host to us during the celebrations of the Golden Jubilee of the Marut in June in Bangalore. Some of us were in constant touch with him during the planning and organising phase. Were it not for his positive and unstinted support to our numerous demands on him, and his own contribution by way of ideas, the function and all the events concerned with it would not have been the grand success that they indeed were.
To all his friends and acquaintances Baldy’s passing away has been a cruel and tragic shock.
We pray God grants his family the strength to deal with this tragedy. Our most sincere and heartfelt condolences to them all. May his gentle soul rest in eternal peace.
