Kien Cheng

Oct 21, 1934 - Oct 18, 2016


Kien Cheng dedicated his life to being a loving and gracious husband, Papa, Gung Gung, son, brother and uncle. Born in Chung Shan, China, he moved to Hong Kong where he met his wife Pauline, opened a Tailor Shop, and raised 5 children with whom he later immigrated to America in order to give them greater opportunities. His passions were his grandchildren, big family gatherings, good conversation, searching out tasty Chinese Cuisine at a value price, NBA basketball, and going for walks to run errands. Bravely battling Stage 4 colon cancer for over 5 years to continue creating beautiful memories with his family, he never ceased to enjoy a full and robust life. His display of courage and resolve as he lived out his years amazed and inspired those who were fortunate enough to be part of his journey. He passed peacefully in his sleep to rejoin his wife of 58 years. He will be greatly missed by his five children and their families: Alice and Albert Fong and children Justine and Jared; Stephen Cheng and wife Phung; Nancy and Wayne Szeto and their sons Jeremy and Aiden; Roger Cheng and wife Connie; Barbara and Gary Bhan and their daughter, Giada; granddaughter and grandson-in-law, Krystin and Charlie Wang. In addition, he is survived by his older sister Miu Yeen, younger brother Benson Cheng, and younger sister Miu Lum along with their families.

    My siblings and I were so incredibly lucky to have been raised by the most amazing 2nd set of parents who were Gung Gung and Po Po. <3 I cannot thank them enough. I love you Gung Gung!

    In this time of sorrow, may these promises from the Scriptures comfort Mr. Cheng’s dear family. Jehovah God is close to the brokenhearted, and he will wipe away the tears from all faces. Psalms 34:18; Isaiah 25:8. Peace be with you, dear family.

    爸爸,每當我們回來探望您和媽咪的時候,您們倆總是帶著很親切的笑容來迎接我們回家.使我們總感覺得很溫暖和窩心.你們通常都會用關懷的詞句來問候我們的.返嚟啦?今日有冇塞車啊?又買咁多嘢返嚟啊? 在短短的10年歲月裡,很慶幸能做到鄭家的兒媳婦.您倆從未有對我兒媳婦要求過什麼.這一點我會銘記在心.感激萬分. 爸爸, 看到您很安詳的離開了我們.我們都很安慰.也很捨不得. 您們倆相継的走了.希望你在天之靈能和去年仙遊的媽咪再度能在極樂世界裡永相隨吧!
