Ming Chow Obituary

My father, Ming Leung Chow, born on December 17, 1953, in GuangDong, China, and later moved to Hong Kong, considered it his home since infancy. As the eldest of three siblings, he assumed responsibilities for his family from a young age, leaving formal education at around 13 to apprentice as a tailor, specializing in suit-making. His crafted items, such as pillowcases and a pencil case, still bear witness to his skills from before his illness.

Transitioning to a role in quality control, he met and married my mother, Ming Fai Chin, in March 1986, and I, their only son, Chun Shing Chow, was born in July 1995.

In 2022, my parents' green card sponsorship by my mother's sister, Aunt Carmen, was approved, leading them to the U.S. in February 2023. Unfortunately, my father's health declined significantly. Hospitalized from February to May, he became dialysis-dependent. By August 2023, he was placed on the transplant list, but, sadly, his health deteriorated further, rendering him unsuitable for transplant in January 2024.

In the face of disease and difficulty, my father displayed unwavering courage. Confronting the unexpected, he showcased remarkable wisdom. His love for his family was boundless. As a sign of grace, the last time he sat alone was when church members visited and prayed for him.

After extensive discussions, we opted for hospice care. He peacefully passed away at home on 01/11/2024, at the age of 70. Throughout his life, he felt blessed with a fulfilling occupation, a loving wife dedicated to caring for him full-time, a supportive son assisting in his medical needs, and, above all, the guidance of God.
