CHUNG, Edward Sen - 1925 - 2017
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our Dad and grandfather, Edward Chung, May 2, 2017, at age 91.
Son of the late Hong Chung and Poon Shing Fong and predeceased by his wife Margaret, to whom he was married to over 61 years, and his siblings Mary and James. Devoted father to Catherine (John Patterson), Pamela (Bob Duffield) and Janice.
Grandfather to Stephanie (Kyle Wilson), Nancy, Joanna and Ashlyn. Geegee, as he liked to be called by his grandchildren, will be dearly missed by his family.
He was a devoted family man with a great sense of humour and he was a master of puns. Ed was born in Niagara Falls, Ontario and had a distinguished education obtaining his BSc at the University of Toronto and a MASc in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He worked for most of his career at Shell Canada as a Chemical Engineer. Ed had a kind, generous nature and a strong religious faith and he and Marg were actively involved with St. Luke's and Humber Valley United Churches.
He had a strong sense of giving back to his community through his volunteer work and in recognition of his work with the Mon Sheong Foundation, Ed received the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2012. Marg and Ed travelled around the world and spent many winters in Florida with friends and relatives playing golf. Ed was an avid golfer and a past member of Islington Golf Club, managing to get a hole in one a number of times.
Special thanks to Minister Mark Winger, Dr. Hung and Kathy McKeen from Trillium Hospital, Dr. Morgan and the wonderful staff from Tapestry, Dr. Mavrogiannis and the staff and volunteers at Dorothy Ley Hospice for their care and compassion.
Visitation will be held on Monday, May 8th from 2-4 and from 6-8 p.m. at the Turner & Porter Funeral Home, Etobicoke. A private family service will be held as per Dad's wishes.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Ed's name can be made to Dorothy Ley Hospice or Humber Valley United Church,
