It is with deep sorrow to record the passing of Mr Chung Yuk Man (Old boy-1971/F5). Yuk Man served in the Executive Committee of the Ying Wa College Old Boys’ Association since the 1990s for over a decade, actively participating in the work of the Association. He pioneered the Service Club for Old Boys in the College. He was instrumental in setting up the Sports Development Fund for sponsoring sports equipment and activities of the College. He also enthusiastically solicited donations for the school campus relocation to Sham Shui Po.
He contributed a lot of his time and energy to and in many ways for the Ying Wa family. He was a role model and an unsung hero for old boys. He will be dearly missed by us all.
In recognition of his outstanding contribution, the College has agreed to the proposal of the Old Boys’ Association to establish a Chung Yuk Man Memorial Scholarship/Prize for a Ying Wa student who excels in sports. We appeal for your kind support and generous donations. You are most welcome to make a donation to support. Tax-deductible receipt for donation of $100 or more will be issued.
Please find enclosed the donation form for your action and thank you for your generous donation.
Based on the research by the Our Heritage & Archive Group so far, he was one of the most outstanding Ying Wa boys of his time.
During his years in Ying Wa, he was a very active member in the school – not only that he was a key member of the scout troop, received the Hong Kong Governor’s letter of commendation in 1926 for rendering first aid to injured persons on two occasions, he was also a member of Ying Wa’s winning basketball team in the Hong Kong basketball open league in 1926 and 1927.
After graduation from Ying Wa, he joined the Royal Hong Kong Regiment (The Volunteers)(皇家香港義勇軍團), participated in the Battle of Hong Kong in December 1941, and upon surrender on 26 December 1941, escaped from Hong Kong to continue the Allied’s campaign against Japanese invasion, eventually arrived at Kunming and served as a war interpreter for the US airforce. He continued to serve at the Royal Hong Kong Regiment (The Volunteers) for many years after the war.
As a keen sportsman, he devoted his career in the development of sports in Hong Kong – in 1936, he became the head of YMCA sports department, and after the war in 1955, he was appointed as the head of the Elizabeth Stadium – one of the few key indoor sports venues in those days, and remained in that position until his retirement in 1966.
As a Ying Wa alumni, for many years, he was remembered as “the man with a gun” in many of the annual Ying Wa Athletic Meets, officiating track events by firing his riffle. From 1956 till late 1960s, he acted as the secretary of YWC Old Boys Association.
It is with deep sorrow to record the passing of Mr Chung Yuk Man (Old boy-1971/F5). Yuk Man served in the Executive Committee of the Association since the 1990s for over a decade, actively pioneering the sports development fund-raising activities for the Ying Wa College students and also soliciting sponsorship in the school campus relocation to Sham Shui Po.
He contributed so much to and in many ways for the Ying Wa family. He was a role model and an unsung hero at the OBA.
He will be dearly missed by us all.
His funeral will be held on 8-9 June, at the Shatin Po Fook Memorial Hall, details as per the attached obituary notice.
