Anwar paid tribute to Oh’s honesty, intelligence, and sense of humour in a poignant message. Anwar referred to Oh as “Kokoh,” or older brother. “Spending time with Kokoh Richard was like being in a great movie theater where you just want to watch and listen. He could be infuriating but he would be the first person you want to be with the next day when you found out what he told you was right. He touched many hearts. It would only take seconds for strangers to be wanting to be his friends.”
