Damien Ku Chi Chung (古志眾) passed away on May 11 in Hong Kong. This sad news came as a great shock to all his Wah Yan friends. It was on May 5 that they received an email from him, saying that he realized only 17 days ago he had cancer originated from the thymus gland spreading to liver and bones and that he had received four radiation therapies, waiting for chemotherapy treatment. A devout Catholic, he placed his trust in God and asked them for prayers.
Damien spent 8 years in Wah Yan Kowloon from Primary 6 in 1956 to Upper Six Science in 1963 and went on to Hong Kong University to complete an engineering degree. Always cheerful and friendly, he could be singled out in all his class photos with his smiling face. View his album here.
