Inquest into Kam’s Death Concluded But Police Investigation Still Open

At an inquest last Thursday, the coroner concluded that Henley resident, Kamaldip Hulait died due to a road collision from head and chest injuries in the early hours of 11 July 2021 on Wyfold Lane, Peppard Common.

In July 2021, two people, a 65 year old man and a 54 year old woman, both from Henley-on-Thames, were arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, and released under investigation.  A spokesperson for Thames Valley Police said, “We are still investigating the circumstances of this incident. Anyone with any information can call 101 quoting reference 43210306555.”

In a tribute to Kam his family said: “Kamaldip Hulait was a son and a brother, with a heart of gold. It is hard to comprehend he is no longer with us, tragically taken too soon.

“Across the community he was known as a gentle giant always putting the needs of others miles ahead of his own. We are hearing stories from locals how he discreetly helped those most in need, asking for nothing in return. He quietly lived his unique life never being a burden to those who loved him.

“Kam was one in a million, he had time for everyone one. Kam was one of the most genuine people anyone could ever meet. He treated all equally and never had a bad word to say about anyone.

“Kam will be missed so very much by everyone who knew him from his family, his friends to the locals he helped. There are not enough words to say how say how very proud we are of him and always will be. He leaves a legacy of selfless deeds filled by pure kindness.

Kam was well known to many Henley residents as he spent many hours sitting on the wall at the ‘Top Shops’ on Greys Road chatting to people. A plaque was installed in November 2021 on one of the Town Council’s large flower planters with the words “In loving memory of Kam Hulait. Love and missed by all. Guardian Angel of Top Shops.”
