Family and friends of Kritesh Krishan Kumar, 25, could not control their emotions when they paid their last visit to the funeral rites held at Pilling Road, Nasinu, yesterday.

Father Suresh Kumar said Kritesh would always be missed by his family and friends.

“He was a family boy. He used to look after everyone and was close to his grandparents,” Mr Kumar said.

“He was so young he shouldn’t have left me and his mother. His absence will make me sad all the time.”

Fiji National University’s officials visited the family and handed over a certificate of completion to family members.

The 25-year-old completed his Bachelor of Commerce programme at the university and was to have graduated tomorrow.

College of Business, Hospitality and Tourism Studies Department of Management College dean, Professor Ram Karan expressed his condolences to his family while presenting the certificate of completion.

FNU College of Business, Hospitality and Tourism Studies Department of Management, Industrial Relations and Occupational Health and Safety Assistant lecturer Karishma Mudaliar, who taught Kritesh, said he was a brilliant and hardworking student and would be missed by everyone.

“The family needs strength, support peace of mind so the university thought of giving the family this certificate of completion. We thought this source would provide condolence to the family,” she said.

She described him as a hardworking and dedicated person in his academic work.

“He was someone who valued academic development and was always interested in contributing in the economy of the country. His interest was venturing into the car business as an entrepreneur,” Ms Mudaliar said.

She said he always stayed focused in his education and he always used to talk about his dreams.

The 25-year-old died early on Sunday after crashing into a lamp post on Ratu Mara Road, Suva. He died instantly.

The current death toll stands at 23 compared to 22 for the same period last year.
