In a moving funeral service, late Doctor Alphonse Rongap Snr's daughter, Dr Violet Rongap, said her dad was a simple and down-to-earth doctor who respected all he knew.
She said many of his studies and courses he took and the profession he had gone through were all for his children.
"What he gained during his training whilst serving respective hospitals in the country were for the betterment of the children.
"And through this, he had a lot of friends. He was so simple and humble,” she said through tear-filled eyes.
