The following was shared by Mike Kwong (67) on 30 Sep 2003: Dear all: Mr. Chu, our LS teacher who used to teach our Chinese was passed away on Sept 23 [2003], in Hong Kong from massive heart attack. Let us pray for our respected teacher and let our prayers and sympathy be passed on to his family & friends. His picture, during his visit to Edmonton a while back, could be seen in our chapter’s photo album. Regards, Mike Kwong The following was a sharing from Chris Leung, a former student, on the passing of Mr Chu: Chris Leung on Mr Chu while he was a student in LSC: “Mr. Chu taught us Chinese Literature and Chinese History for many years (from F1 – F.5). If I am not mistaken, I also had him for Matric. We called him “CHU LO” who took over the Chinese subjects from Mr. Yip Wing Lam. Despite his boring teaching style, he was a great teacher who always prepared for his lessons. He was a gentleman who took his responsibilities seriously. He also made life easier for us with his notes. We took advantage of his “softness” by calling him names all the time, but he was not offended because he loved his students. It was sad to hear he passed away after his two visits to Edmonton. Chris” (end of quote) The photo attached shows a visit of Mr Chu to Edmonton in the early 1990s.
