Ancient Mariner@ Capt. Yusof Ahmad ...In Memory

Updated on July 20 @ 10:37 a.m. from Elviza

This is a message from Captain’s daughter, Aisyah:
“Dear All,
On behalf of my family, thank you for your kind words and wishes. We’re not sure how to contact all his friends, so hope this will reach some, if not most.
There will be a Tahlil tonight after Isyak prayers at Surau An Nai’mah next to our residence at Tiara Kelana Condo in SS 7 Kelana Jaya. It would mean a lot to us if you could attend.

Thank you.
Aisyah Yusof (Captain’s daughter)

My deepest condolence to the wife and family of Capt. Yusof Ahmad @ Ancient Mariner that passed away last night. He passed away at the age of 64 after serving the maritime industry more then three decades.

For the last few years he has been blogging under the name Ancient Mariner highlighting current issues without any fear or favor. He will be well remembered among the bloggers and maritime community.

I have lost a dear friend that shared many common interests, especially in our endeavor to uplift the maritime professionals through Malaysian Maritime Institute ( IKMAL ).

Semoga Allah kurniakan keredaan dan keampunanNya keatas arwah bersama mereka yang soleh dan beriman. Al Fatihah.
Arwah selamat dikebumikan di Linggi - kampung halamannya pada 19 Julai 2009.

He has been very busy for the last few weeks visiting his ailing mother who passed away recently. He was a great man with a kind heart and a true friend.

Kak Teh welcome home and hope we can have a get together like before. Let me know your schedule and we will do the rest.

InnaliLlahi wa inna ialaHi raaji'uun.

Sdr Jaflam, saya membaca berita ini dengan penuh kesedihan. Semoga Allah mengampuni dosanya, menggandakan kebaikannya dan meridhakan Jannah untuknya.

I met him only once (at a gathering organised by you) and he struck me as a very kind and humble person. A great loss.

See you soon, Insha Allah.

Salam AG,
Capt. Yusof merupakan sahabat yang tidak menjadikan perbezaan pendapat dan fahaman politik sebagai halangan kepada persahabatan itu sendiri. Itu merupakan kelebihan beliau yang ketara dan lebih 20 tahun persahabatan kami beliau sentiasa bersedia memberi masa dan tenaga untuk kerja2 kebajikan.

Beliau pergi dengan tenang dan baik dalam tidur shukur Alhamdulillah.

Pls call me in KL and we will meet up.
