We were shocked and saddened to hear of Lal's passing in the Herald today. My wife Emma and I worked with Lal at St.George Bank, and he was the kindest and gentlest man that we have ever been fortunate enough to work with. Rest in peace, Lal.

I was very sad to learn today about Lal's passing away. He was my mentor and friend many years ago at the Standards Association of Australia, where he was a driving force behind the development of the standards that are still used every day by every Australian when using ATMs or EFTPOS. I hold him in great regard. My sincere condolences to Carmen and his daughters.

I was very fortunate to have worked with Lal for a number of years at St George Bank. He was one of the kindest, most generous and calmest people I have ever met. Always willing to assist, mentor and give advice to anyone he met and with such a wicked sense of humour and razor sharp wit. Lal you are gone way too soon, and I think of you often. You were one of natures true gentlemen and I learnt so much from you. If I can be just a little like you I will make a big difference in this world. We hadn't seen each other for a while, but I will miss you greatly. To Carmen and Lal's family, I hope you are all well and that time is helping you, although I know you will feel his loss for a long time. My thoughts are with you all still. Rest In Peace Lal.
