Shocked! Former Penang junior chess player killed in hit & run accident!

Today early morning i read the star online newspaper and found out that I had lost a very good chess player friend & 12 years of friendship. The first time i met Lee Kuang Hawe was in the MSSPP (Majlis Sekolah-Sekolah Sukan Pulau Pinang) U15 in 1996 which i played for my school team SMK St Xavier while he represented SMJK Chung Ling. I only played him once which is in the Dell Chess League in year 2000 & ended draw. He was a very kind & helpful person. As I know Kuang Hawe is the sole bread for his whole family & support his sister medication. His funeral procession will start tommorow 2pm from Rifle Range funeral parlour to Batu Gantung, Penang. For chess players in Penang and those who wish to pay last respect to him can attend the procession tomorrow or tonight at Rifle Range funeral parlour. I will be going back to Penang tonight after my class to pay him last respect. Let's pray for him and his family. Whoever is responsible for this irresponsible kind of act, please turn yourself in.


Wedding plans dashed as man dies in hit-and-run

image GEORGE TOWN: Lee Kuang Hawe had finally got his girlfriend to agree to marry him, but a hit-and-run accident robbed them both of a happy ending.

The 26-year-old engineer from Penang was run down in Kuala Lumpur last Thursday while returning home on his motorcycle.

It is believed that the incident in Jalan 2/149 in Sri Petaling happened at around 12.30am. Lee’s fiancee Fong Kah Ee, 25, described the former SMJK Chung Ling chess player as caring and considerate.

“For years, he was asking me to get married and we finally agreed to be registered this year. But now I’ll never have the chance,” Fong told reporters at the Rifle Range funeral parlour yesterday.

Lee’s cousin Tan Yin Pin, 31, said a passer-by found Lee’s body partially hidden under a bush in the afternoon, more than 12 hours after the incident was said to have taken place.

However, Lee’s motorcycle was missing from the scene.

“I don’t understand how someone could have taken the motorcycle and left him there. I appeal to the person to return the motorcycle to the police so that they will have a starting point to find out who did this,” said Tan.

She also appealed to anyone who had information on the incident to call the family at 016-4025185 or inform the police.

Lee was riding a black Honda C70 bearing the licence plate number PCA 5534.
