ERIC CHOI Yan Sang passed away about three weeks ago from cancer of the pancreas.

It was detected early, incidentally, successfully operated on but it recurred almost immediately after recovery from the operation, with peritoneal seedlings and difficulty in eating. He was in Queen Mary’s Hospital for more than 6 months.

Those of us who were keen to play football would remember him as the ideal left winger, tall, dark, always smiling, humorous and with Elvis’s hair style. Of course he was a good singer and outstanding guitarist.

Though I am not familiar with both Eric Choi and Kwok Wing Kee throughout my years at Wah Yan I am still saddened to learn of their departure.  不枉此生。

It is indeed shocking to receive the sad news about our two classmates within only a few weeks.  It is doubly shocking to learn that Eric's cancer, though detected early and successfully operated on, recurred almost immediately after the operation recovery.

He was indeed very well-known to all of us as one of the best football players of our time.

May he rest in peace!

I looked at our Form 2C class photo, and recognised many faces and names that are familiar to me up to the present time.

Eric Choy does appear to be very sporty. I believe sports and music are two wholesome pastimes for all of us.

While I shall miss Eric to have left us at a young age, I wish all the remaining ones will keep young and active by vigorously involved with sports and music.

Please be assured that Eric will be remembered. I wish his family members know that they have our deepest sympathy from all of us!

It is sad to hear that another two of our classmates have recently departed. This shows how important it is to get together whenever and wherever we can while we still can travel.

Please keep in mind our upcoming reunion from September 21 to 24 in San Francisco where we will have a chance to see each other again. No need to submit any forms, just send a confirmation via email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you plan to join us. We have a great get together planned for you.

It is really saddening to hear that two of our classmates passed away in just a week.  For those of us who are fortunate enough to still be around, it makes our long-time friendship appear that much more treasurable.  May both of our friends rest in peace.

He left us at either form 2 or 3 or in-between for Australia, came back after his studies in UK and started his work in the Government as an Executive Officer.
He retired some years ago and then was recruited by the URC( Urban Redevelopment Council ) until his death.

While we were members of the HK civil service, our paths never crossed on official matters. I met him about five or six years ago at a lunch hosted by the Commissioner of Police , just two of us were CP 's guests. He came across as a warm, straight forward and friendly chap. I was glad that I was able to lend assistance to him on a social issue. My deep condolences to his family.

He was one of us nearly always playing football in the sandy pitch at lunch times.
He was a good left footer.

I was in Tak-Yan too.
I think Eric was also transferred from Tak-Yan.

I didn't realize I was in 1C. I cannot recognize myself in the picture. I remember Eric's Chinese name and but again I can't recognize how he looks like. I am sure we must have played football or marbles in the sandy field. Those were the good times.
