Choy Nam Hoi 蔡南凱

Age: 83

Passed away peacefully on 5 December 2018

Our beloved Daddy is a very devoted husband to his beloved wife of 47 years, an immensely loving daddy to us and a tenderly doting grandfather to Claire and Chloe, his precious granddaughters. He was an avid supporter of English Premier League's Manchester United and renowned tennis player Roger Federer. We have had many memorable moments watching tennis on racquet channel, soccer and the finals of 4-yearly World Cup matches on football channel.

As a foodie, and when he was still able, he enjoyed whipping up piping hot meals for his family, made signature sandwiches for us to take along for our family road trips to Malaysia and derived pleasure watching the Asian Food Channel as he marveled over the wide variety of cuisines within this region. His wide spectrum of interests had made him a very good conversationalist each time, every time. We conversed in Cantonese about his childhood days catching spiders, when he tossed his school bag aside right after school, played till he had completely forgotten about dinner then sneaked into the kitchen for a quick bowl of gravy mixed with plain white rice. Indeed I had those mesmerizing Hong Kong dramas on video tapes to thank for preparing me to meet my future father-in-law 19 years later. What an amazing destiny and journey it has been.

Daddy loved listening to Christian hymns and told me he was a baritone in the Choy family choir made up of his beloved siblings. Shaw’s Kungfu movies, Michael Hui’s comedies, Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung's action comedies were among his favorite too. When he was still strong and active, he enjoyed connecting with nature and would spend his mornings doing simple martial exercises he called Lok Tung Kuen to keep himself fit. As a devoted Christian, weekly 7.30am worship service at Wesley Methodist Church had been observed for many years. He was a firm believer of punctuality and the importance of keeping to a routine which while to some might seem boring was his way of demonstrating orderliness, an important godly virtue since our God Himself is an orderly God. He cared deeply about each of us and would wait up or call if we got home later than the usual hour. We will miss how he waited for our return from our holidays even at wee hours of the night, beaming with smile as he welcomed us back from his favorite lounge chair.

His passing is a tremendous loss to us, to his immediate family, every sibling here and abroad, to those who knew him, directly or indirectly. We miss him terribly but we know too that when we remain firmly rooted in Christ, we shall see daddy face to face in the presence of our Lord Jesus some day. Even as we grieve his passing, we will courageously choose to celebrate his life. Truly it was a life well lived, victoriously and to the fullest, with the unwavering principle to love unconditionally, as he had demonstrated to us time and time again.

Rest in peace dear daddy, for you have fought the good fight, you have finished the race, you have kept the faith. Now there is in store for you the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to you on that day—and not only to you, but also to all who have longed for His appearing. 2 Timothy 4:7-8
