It’s with much sadness when I received news that former Nanyang MP, Mr Alvin Yeo, had passed on this morning after battling cancer for last two years.
I took over Nanyang from Alvin as Adviser in 2015 and is grateful to him that he has established a strong grassroots / party volunteer network.
Residents remember him fondly and he is the perfect gentleman.
Rest in peace Alvin, you will be missed. -Yee Chia Hsing 余家兴
Heard the sad news that Alvin Yeo SC passed away earlier today.
Served briefly with Alvin as fellow Council members in Law Soc Council before he ran for elections as MP in Hong Kah GRC in 2006. Remember him as soft spoken, but firm, and an exceptionally wise gentleman. This picture was of the Law Soc Council members in 2005.
RIP Alvin. 😞 -Michael S Chia
[Rest in peace, Brother Alvin] Deeply sadden to learn that a colleague and good friend, Comrade Alvin Yeo, has passed away. He was only 60 and fought a courageous battle in the last 2 years.
Alvin and I were colleagues in Chua Chu Kang GRC when I entered politics in 2011. He started serving Nanyang constituency from 2006 when it was still part of Hong Kah GRC.
He was a giant in the legal fraternity, having been appointed Senior Counsel of the Supreme Court of Singapore in 2000 at the age of 37, the youngest ever to be so appointed. He was Chairman & Senior Partner of WongPartnership LLP.
While he towered over everyone with his height, he was gentle at heart, a big brother who guided and treated me with great kindness.
Although he retired from politics in 2015, we kept in touch and met for meals to catch up. His wry sense of humour and yet deep depth of thought always kept our conversations interesting.
I found out close to the end of 2020 that he was ill. He was undergoing treatment then and yet he remained positive, saying that he looked forward to meet up with a few of us in 2022 when he was fully recovered.
Yet, COVID stood in our way and for much of 2021 we were unable to meet due to the restrictions and out of an abundance of caution.
Unfortunately, we never made our date. Brother Alvin, you will be sorely missed. Deepest condolences to Sister Hee Lien, my thoughts and prayers are with you and the family during this difficult time.
Eternal rest grant unto your child Alvin, O Lord. -Alex Yam
Greatly saddened to read of the untimely passing of Mr Alvin Yeo from illness.
Many years ago, Alvin represented our family successfully on a matter of tremendous importance to us – and I will always be grateful to him.
May he Rest In Peace. -Yeoh Lian Chuan
