Abu Bakar bin Mohd Yusope
@ Pak Bakar/Pak Kau (abang Bapak)

Full name: Abu Bakar bin Mohd Yusope
Call name: Bapak called his brother Abang Bakar. I called him Pak Bakau.
Relationship: He was Bapak's eldest brother, and the eldest boy in the family.
Born: 7:28 pm, malam, Khamis, 19 March 1930
Deceased: __ (after 1987)

Wife: Mariam?
Her call name: Mak Yam, Mak Cik Mariam
Children: 2
  1. Abu Hasan
  2. Mastura

Pak Bakau held odd jobs and spoke good English. He often spoke to Mak. He married a Singaporean Malay lady and had 2 kids (a boy and a girl). They lived in Singapore.

I remember his family visited us when we lived at Jalan Day, Alor Star in Kedah. Later, he divorced Mak Cik, and the family returned to Singapore. I don't recall whether he remarried or married someone else.

He returned to Singapore, died in Singapore and is buried in Singapore. His siblings attended his funeral in Singapore.
