MALAYSIAN fencing mourned the death of former great Ronnie Ignatius Theseira yesterday. He was 92.
According to one of his former charges, Ricky Loo, the Olympian died of old age.
“One of my seniors in fencing texted me about his demise yesterday morning,” Loo said when contacted by Bernama today.
The 76-year-old former national athlete said Theseira’s passing was a huge loss to the sport.
Theseira, who helped introduce the sport to Malaysia in the 1950s, was a founder of the Malaysian Amateur Fencing Association and had coached most of the national fencers in the 1970s and 1980s.
“He was a very healthy person. The last time I met him was during a Christmas dinner in Malacca,” he added.
Meanwhile, Malaysian Fencing Federation president Rusni Abu Hassan said the funeral service for Theseira will be held on Tuesday at 11am at Xiao En Centre, Jalan Kuari in Cheras.
Friends and relatives can pay their last respects at the centre from 10am to 10pm today and tomorrow.
According to a Facebook post from the Malaysia Olympians Association, Theseira represented Malaysia in fencing at the 1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Apart from fencing, he also excelled in boxing, bodybuilding and ballroom dancing.
“Our deepest condolences to his family and friends. May his soul rest in peace,” it said. – Bernama, June 19, 2022.
