PIETERMARITZBURG businessman Kemraj “Kemmie” Singh, who was well-known in the glass and aluminium industry, passed away after suffering a major heart attack.

His family told The Witness that Singh, who owned Aquaria Glass & Aluminium, died after returning with his wife from a vacation in Johannesburg on January 9.

“Before their departure from Johannesburg back to Pietermaritzburg, he was suffering with chest pains. While travelling back to Pietermaritzburg he received a phone call from the alarm company, informing him that a burglary had taken place at his home in Ashburton.

“Kemmie then suffered a mild heart attack while travelling.

“Upon his arrival at his home, where he spent only 45 minutes, Kemmie suffered a major heart attack and passed away,” said the family.

Singh’s wife Nishi and sons Heresh, Veresh and Ashlee will take over the reins at the business, which he took over in 2004.
