"He always remained humble and respectful no matter what but nothing in life happens except by Allah (God) active or permissive will so we thank God for his life and pray for his family and friends RIP Ramdial!!!" Lyn added.

Ramdial's Facebook page was flooded by friends expressing sadness at his death.
