Your knowledge, humbleness, hardworking and sense of humour will be remembered forever! Jake. REST IN PEACE.
I did not know Panlop (Jake, as I knew him) well but I first met him around the time I commenced my RMIT career in 1983 and when the Department of Computing had just split from the Department of Maths & Computing. Jake was always jovial, friendly, polite and diplomatic, qualities which I noted for my own benefit. My deepest and sincere condolences to Jake's family and friends. Daryl
Dear Jake, thank you very much for being such a wonderful and caring friend. Those of us who got to know you, were very lucky for having crossed paths with you. Right now we are feeling very sad by your departure. We will always remember you for your sense of humour, willingness to help others and for your sincerity. May you rest in peace! Our deepest condolences to Marie Basil & Lalitha
Dearest Jake, I was truly saddened to hear of your passing. Having known you almost my whole life, from when I arrived in Australia in the mid 1970s to the date of my engagement in late 2010, I can say it has truly been a great pleasure to have known you and consider you my friend. I remember your generousity, when as a toddler, I played with the embracing puppy dogs soft toy which I think you must have bought for Marie, but did not hesitate to give me when I took a shine to it. You were also a tremendous chef, I remember the amazing dinner parties you threw, and also the games of chess, poker and heaps of other fun things I have no space to list them all. You will be greatly missed. Our sincerest condolences Marie Bindusri de Silva & Family
I will remember you as my mentor and best friend forever. Rest In Peace.
I am saddened to learn that we have lost Jake. I first met Jake when I was on sabbatical, visiting RMIT. Although I was not working with Jake, he befriended me. He invited my family over to his home and he always had time for me in his busy schedule. I will forever value his friendship. My deepest sympathies to Marie.
Marie, my thoughts and prayers are with you as you mourn the loss of your beloved husband who was also one of my oldest close friends. I will miss Jake very much. Ever since we met as students at The University of Melbourne, ours has been a very special friendship. I learned a lot from him (including the secret of making a great curry) and I will always remember his kindness, wit and wisdom. May he rest in peace. Jerzy
Marie, My deepest sympathies for you at this time. Panlop was well-liked by colleagues and students. He had such a good work ethic while always making time to be pleasant to everyone. A friend to all, he will be sadly missed. John
Dear Marie, our deepest sympathies go out to you and your family. We will keep in our memory how kind and friendly Panlop was. We do not forget his warm and helpful welcome when we arrived in Australia, our nice discussions and the very good time time we had at your home. We will miss Panlop so much. Please accept our deepest condolences. Marc and Ceri
