Soam said Teo has always been a mentor to Rehda, losing him is like losing a pillar of support as he was always approachable and ever willing to contribute for the betterment of the industry.

“We will always remember his selflessness in agreeing to allow his director of Paramount Property (late Datuk Ricque Liew) spearhead the supervision in the construction of Wisma Rehda. We will all miss him dearly. We would like to extend our deepest condolence and heartfelt sympathy to his family. May his soul Rest in Peace,” he said.
