Sebastian Tan, who led the United States Sports Academy Singapore Alumni Association, died of a heart attack at his home on Monday. He was 60.
Sebastian Tan took over as the Alumni Association president in June after being involved with the group for many years and, in fact, serving as the right-hand man for the previous president, Pat Tan Eng Yoon, who died in January.
“It was with shock and great sadness that we heard of the passing of Sebastian Tan,” says Academy President and CEO Dr. Thomas P. Rosandich. “We greatly appreciated all his service.”
Sebastian Tan was working on getting more Academy alumni involved in the association, including those who received their degrees from the institution in the United States and newer program graduates from the International Sports Academy-Singapore. ISA runs the university’s educational programs there.
He also served as president of the Singapore Lawn Bowls Association, which was preparing for the upcoming South East Asian Games. Funeral services were planned for Wednesday, Oct. 19.
Sebastian Tan is survived by his wife, Pam, and two sons, Terence and Theophane. Funeral services were planned for Wednesday, Oct. 19.
