Tributes paid to Oxford teacher

Tributes have been paid to a “passionate and skilled” University of Oxford teacher and father of three who died on the M40 last month.

Tsering Dhundup Gonkatsang, 66, known popularly by the nickname Genla, which is Tibetan for respected teacher, died after a collision on the M40 on April 27.

The father-of-three was taken to Wexham Park Hospital, Slough, where he later died.

His family said: “Genla will be remembered as a devoted husband, a loving father and grandfather; a thoroughly professional, yet kind, helpful, humble and patient colleague; a passionate and skilled teacher; and a local and dependable friend with a great sense of humour.”

Mr Gonkatsang was the first Tibetan language instructor in the Oriental Institute at the University of Oxford and worked there since 2001.
