CHU, Professor Raymond Wei-hsing - 1936-2021 Passed away peacefully on Saturday, November 27, 2021 with family at his side.
He was predeceased by his dear wife of 51 years, May Hue-Ching Chu (née Chen).
He was the much beloved father of Yen Chu Hauck and Dr. Robert Wei Chu, father-in-law of Jodi Campbell Chu and Dr. Gerd Hauck, and YeYe of Madeleine, Abigail, Oscar, Albert, Berte, and Otto.
Raymond will also be lovingly remembered by his many nieces, nephews, students and friends.
Born in Shanghai, Raymond immigrated to Toronto in 1960 where he found his longed-for home and thrived in his academic career at the University of Toronto, East Asian Studies, until his retirement in 2000.
He had a love/hate relationship with golf and enjoyed classical music, jazz, the outdoors, and travelling the globe with family.
Raymond was always happy to share his copious knowledge of Chinese culture, history and politics with any willing set of ears.
He was selfless, gentle, thoughtful, genuine, modest and wise in equal measure and will be intensely missed.
A private family memorial will be held at a later date.
