Bro. L’Angellier Casimir - Down the Memory Lane – Lasallians Remembered

Bro. Casimir, L’Angellier

Date of Birth: 1900 Period of Service: 1970 – 1971 Date of Death: 18 December 1975


Brother Casimir L’Angellier was born in Singapore, 5 May 1900. He belonged to a highly respected, staunch, long-standing Catholic family. After receiving his early education in St. Joseph’s Institution, Singapore, he was among the first novices to join the Da La Salle Brothers at the newly opened Novitiate in Kuala Lumpur, 1916.

After his religious and pedagogical training, he taught with success in Singapore and Malaysia. He held the post of Principal for more than 20 years. In 1970, he came to Hong Kong to help Brother Paul Sun in St. Joseph’s Anglo-Chinese School. When his health deteriorated slightly he returned to help in La Salle Primary School.

He suffered a stroke in 1971 and was confined to St. Teresa’s Hospital where he remained an example of calm, patience and resignation to God’s will until his death on 18 December [1975] – exactly one week short of his Golden Jubilee of Perpetual Profession as a Brother. He made his profession in the Order of the Brothers on Christmas Day, 1925.

The Brothers wish to record their sincere thanks to the Sisters and Nursing Staff of St. Teresa’s Hospital who over the past years rendered Brother Casimir such persevering, loving and devoted care.
