Wong Hin Shing (’61) passed away in Sunnybrook Hospital, Toronto, on February 7, 2024 (Wednesday). Wah Yan College lost one of her most loyal sons, and WYKAAO one of its founding members. His classmates, the ’61 Grads, lost a true friend, the pillar and hub of the community, “the glue that kept the ’61 group together”, in the well-put words of one classmate.

He had worked tirelessly to bind the community together, compiling over 30 In Memoriam files for deceased fathers, teachers and classmates and uploading them periodically to refresh the collective memory (You can find these using the Search box on the WYKAAO website). Being a classical and traditional music lover, he liked to provide friends with well selected quality music that suited special occasions like Easter and Chinese New Year. He cared about and kept in touch with the teachers who were in Toronto: Mr Choi, Mr Ho, Mr Tam, Mr Hsieh and Mr Mui. He will be greatly and irreplaceably missed. May he rest in peace.
