The Bau family is saddened to announce the loss of Yun Shen who passed away at the age of 89.
Yun Shen was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and brother. He had a long distinguished career as a professor in Microbiology at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. His inquisitive mind led him to excel in anything he pursued.
Outside of academics, he enjoyed photography, Chinese opera, calligraphy and travelling. This is evident by the myriads of photographs, books and written notes he left behind. But above all, he enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He wanted to be with his loved ones at every opportunity. He understood from the beginning how precious time and companionship were in life.
The last few years were especially difficult as he battled dementia. This progressively prevented him from enjoying the life that he loved. Despite this, he never stopped loving his family. More importantly, to the end, he never stopped loving God. May he be with God in paradise.
Yun Shen will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, an invitation-only visitation and funeral will be held.
