He underwent a third surgery and was moved to the Intensive Care Unit where he was administered life support to his lungs, kidneys and heart.

Rest in peace, Aloysius

As we mark the passing of a young Singaporean son, let us also remember the incredible life he lived, and how he fought the good fight till the end.

Aloysius posted this prescient quote last December, on his Instagram page,

Someone else is moving forward whenever we’re standing still.

We sincerely hope he has moved on to a better place and is in no more pain, even as this tragedy brings the lives of those around him to a standstill.

MS News offers our sincerest condolences to his family, loved ones and fans. The nation grieves with you.
