My deepest condolences! Being Shani's friend I have had the opportunity to meet her dad on a few occasions.  He was a kind man and one memory that will always remain with me was when he offered to drive me to my medical board exam. My ride was canceled and I had to scramble last minute. Shani asked her dad and he was more than willing to help me, which was huge as this one was one of the most important exams of my life. His kindness will always be remembered. May he rest in peace!

Radhey was a good friend and colleague for many years at the University of Guelph Department of Mathematics and Statistics. When I first arrived in Guelph in the 80s, my office was right next to Radhey’s and we used to speak about statistics of course but also many other things on pretty much a daily basis. It was always a great pleasure to chat and usually joke quite a bit.

Radhey had a great sense of humor and we shared many laughs together. He and I supervised many graduate students together. I managed to contact some of these on the weekend and they have sent their condolences. Their replies indicate their warm affection and great respect for professor Singh. I share that affection and respect myself, of course. It really was a great pleasure to work with Radhey and our students. They have gone on to very successful careers many of them in academia and other non university places as well,of course, such as finance, pharmaceuticals and other industries. He was a great colleague, a really fine man and he will be missed greatly by me personally, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and his many graduate students.

Finally, I should mention he was a really brilliant researcher. He wrote some phenomenal papers (over 100) and produced some deep results in mathematical statistics, particularly in the area of Empirical Bayes. He published some extraordinarily influential work in the Annals of Statistics, one of our most prestigious journals. I was reading a book recently by Efron, one of our top statisticians who refers admiringly to one of Radhey’s important Annals papers. This paper is still worth reading today and I looked at it again recently. The exposition was remarkably clear and the scholarship exemplary. These were in the days when single authored papers were the rule. I have many co-authored papers with Radhey and our students and will treasure these in his memory. It is an honour to have worked with such a good person. He was truly a gentleman and a scholar. A good human being, a great guy to work with, and very sadly missed by me personally and of course by loving family and will not be forgotten by the University and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.

I met your dad years ago after getting my hair done at your mom's salon. She invited us back to their home and a friendship began for many years. I would come to visit with my daughter many times and I remember sitting and having tea, the many parties we went to and of course your mom and dad's wedding. I learned so much about your traditions. Your dad will forever hold a a pencil place in my heart and will be missed. May he rest in peace and wrap his wings around you from heaven as you continue your journeys here on Earth.
