RIP Gavin Singh

Passing of Gavin Singh 13 July 2017
I deliver this statement on behalf of Hot 91.9fm with an incredible sense of sadness and disbelief. At approximately 4pm yesterday 13 July 2017, Hot 91.9fm presenter Gavin Singh, suffered a massive heart attack. Medical staff tried to revive Gavin but were unsuccessful in their attempts. Gavin Singh passed away at 4:20pm.

Today we mourn the tragic loss of a gentle soul, with a kind heart, who we were truly Blessed to have spent each day with. Gavin, your tragic loss has left us with a feeling of emptiness and hurt and whilst this time will not be easy, together as a Hot 91.9 family we will get through this together.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Gavin’s parents and the Singh family.

Rest in Peace Gav. We will miss you.
