Dear Old Boys and Friends of DBS,
Maurice Siu Cheuk Ming (nickname 燒雞, Class of 1989), 42, passed away peacefully on Friday, September 21, 2012, at Kwong Wah Hospital with his family present.
Maurice had been suffering with germ cell cancer for the past three years. He had bravely confronted and fought the disease until he succumbed to cancer and drifted off to be with the Lord last Friday. Maurice is survived by his beloved wife, Irene Fung and his adored 2-year-old daughter Siu Chuen Yan. He is also survived by his parents and several siblings.
Maurice was born on October 11, 1969 and was the eighth of the ten children. Maurice was an outstanding track athlete during his years in DBS. He broke several records in long and short distance run, in particular, his record in Division A 1500-meter long run had not been beaten for more than two decades. After graduation, Maurice had been actively participating in the DSOBA and was an ex-General Committee member. Maurice received his Bachelor’s Degree in Education from the University of Hong Kong and had spent over 10 years teaching math and physical education in different primary and secondary schools in Hong Kong. Despite the fact that Maurice had been battling cancer in recent years, as a Christian, he still travelled around sharing his own experiences, hoping to enlighten others to have faith, courage and persistence in time of adversity.
The following is the arrangement of the Funeral Service for Maurice:
