Dr Aw Swee-Eng passed into eternity on 8th February 2024 at the age of 85. We can only agree with the words of an official obituary:

“Renowned for his keen intellect, Dr. Aw was not only a trailblazer in his field but also a mentor and guide to countless aspiring minds. His passion was matched only by his kindness and generosity, leaving an enduring impact on all fortunate enough to know him.” We will miss him and also his support for biblical creation.
