Arthur Johnson (48) - obituary

Arthur Johnson was born in Hong Kong on 10th September 1930.

He attended the Diocesan Boys' School ('48), but the Japanese Occupation of HK during the 2nd World War disrupted his education. After HK was liberated from the Japanese occupation, he returned to HK and completed High School education at the St. Paul's Co-education College.

After graduation, he joined the HK Civil Service as an accountant in the Medical and Health Department. Shortly thereafter, he started to work as a Health Inspector with the Urban Services Department of the HK Government.

He attended the Royal College of Health Inspection in London and obtained his Higher Diploma in Food Hygiene in 1968. Upon his return to HK, he continued to serve the Urban Services Department of the HK Government until his retirement in 1986. His last posting was Senior Superintendent of Health Inspection in charge of the entire health inspectorate of HK. Sir Murray Maclehose, the Governor of HK appointed him a Justice of the Peace in 1981.

He married Tang Yuk Sang in 1951. Out of their marriage, 4 children were born, namely Susan, Vicky, Winnie (all DGS old girls) and Eugene Leslie (DBS old boy class of 81). Yuk Sang was a home-maker dedicating her entire life towards looking after the family.

Arthur immigrated to Canada in 1986 and started to live permanently in Vancouver in 1989. After a valiant battle with lung cancer, he passed away on 24th November 2006 at the Rouge Valley Centenary Hospital at the age of 76.
