Sad Demise – Sam Fredoon Pedder
It is sad informing you that
Sam Peddar, pilot with the Royal Indian Air force during the early 1940’s, who along with the Engineer brothers saw action in
the then N.W.F. Provinces & Burma. Later he and Jangoo Engineer opted for Air India, he was the Chief Instructor with Air India,
one who also flew the Holy Fires from Aden to Bombay in the 1970s. He passed away in London earlier today April 22, 2017.
exactly five years to the day that he had a stroke.
He willed his body to the London Anatomy Office for medical research.
According to Sam’s wishes, there will be no funeral. If anyone wishes to donate in Sam’s memory,
please do so either to Oxfam, Greenpeace (UK or India) or to the Bhopal Medical Fund (https://bhopal.org/).
The latter is the only charity providing free medical aid to the tens of thousands of victims of the Union Carbide gas leak.
Hope the attached collage of Sam’s journey through life leaves those who knew him with happy memories.
