With profound saddness, we would like to let you know that KU Chi Chung, Damien passed away peacefully at Queen Elizabeth Hospital on 11 May 2011 at the age of 67 following a courageous battle with cancer.
The passing away of our beloved daddy/husband happened so quickly that it came as a shock to all of us. But we are also grateful to God that Damien has not suffered much and has been able to join hands peacefully with the angels to enter into God’s kindgom.
Damien has been a very dedicated man, wherever he was – at home, at work or for the community. He is a loving husband and father, and has always been our anchor for the family. He was a dutiful civil servant, serving the Water Supplies Department for almost 38 years, retiring as an Assistant Director. Damien was devoted to the water industry and environmental protection for all his work life and has been the International Vice President of the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Managment (CIWEM) since 2001. He was also an enthusiastic volunteer at church, serving at the HK Catholic Marriage Advisory Council for more than 30 years. His depature will certainly be missed by many, but we look forward to reunion with him one day in Heaven.
The funeral mass is now fixed at 12:30pm on 4 June 2011 at St. Joseph’s Church, 37 Garden Road. We will also have a vigil prayer the night before, on 3 June 2011 at 7:00pm at St. Joseph’s Church.
Please do not send any flowers as the church does not allow us to stack so many flowers. Your prayers already provide strong support for us.
Phyllis, Genevieve, Benedict, Gabriel and Charmaine
