“In April, we did a positron emission tomography scanning of his neck, in which some spots were found again. He did not have any discomfort or pain in any way but we did not want to take any risk and started his chemotherapy sessions again. He is completely fine. We take him to the hospital for the session just once a month. We will get a PET scan done again next month and I hope those spots are gone,” his son told Spotboye.


He is survived by his wife and three children.

May his soul rest in peace.
