Kung Heng Chau


Kung Heng Chau

August 19th, 1932 – Panyu District, Guangdong China

February 23rd 2024 – Calgary, Alberta Canada

Our father took his last breath Friday morning February 23rd, 2024, at the age of 92 in comfort and at peace. Family members and many relatives, from multiple continents and in many languages said their farewells before his passing. He was a good man. He was a lucky man.

Kung Heng Chau was born in Panyu, Guangdong China, on August 19th, 1932.  He emigrated to Kowloon, Hong Kong in 1947.  He joined the Royal Hong Kong Police in 1950 and served for 26 years.  

Father married our mother Tung Hao To in 1957 and settled in Kowloon, Hong Kong where they had three children; Simon, Agnes, and Eddie.  After their children went to study overseas, our parents moved to Taipei, Taiwan in 1976.

Father and mother immigrated from Taipei, Taiwan to Calgary, Alberta, Canada in 1995.

A favourite thing father loved to do was storytelling, especially the one about him flexing his muscles to scare off some ne’er-do-well who was bothering mother when they were on a date. 

While having had only three years of formal education in China, father never stopped reading and there were always books of all subjects in his home. One time he decided to learn acupressure techniques and many benefited.

Father was adventurous, generous, gregarious, laughed often and loudly. We will miss his laughter.

Kung Heng Chau is survived by his wife of 67 years, Tung Hao, his three children Simon (Martha), Agnes (Sam), and Eddie (Rose), his seven grandchildren Amanda, Jonathan (Audrey), Corbin (Kirsten), Connor (Larissa), Sheldon, Peter, and Alex, and great-grandson Jonah.

Kung Heng Chau is also survived by his sister San Mui in China, and many nephews, nieces, extended family members and close friends around the world.

Kung Heng Chau was predeceased by his parents, a brother, and a younger sister, who all lived in China.
