Famous producer Wilson Chin Kwok Wai passed away from pancreatic cancer on October 27th. His widow Calinda Chan Yuen Wai and the funeral committee yesterday issued an obituary. According to the obituary Chin Kwok Wai passed away at age 59, services will be held on December 8th at the Po Fook Memorial Hall in Tai Wai, Sha Tin and the funeral will take place the next day before the cremation at the Fu Shan Crematorium. In order to coordinate with a suitable funeral day, the funeral had to wait until December. Chin Kwok Wai was great with people in life. The funeral committee had 18 members, including Eric Tsang Chi Wai, Andrew Lau Wai Keung, Elaine Lok Yi Ling, Ho Lai Chuen, Dior Cheng Yi Kin, Yoyo Mung Ka Wai, Chin Kar Lok, Jerry Lamb Hiu Fung, Sandy Lamb Shan Shan, Mak Cheung Ching, Ben Wong Chi Yin, Maria Lai Chi Shan and others.
For environmental protection, the family asked for a deposit into the widow's bank account directly in lieu of sending floral arrangement. Were they concerned that the move would lead to outside concern about Mrs. Chin's finances? They responded, "No, most of the funerals in our industry are done this way. Now with environmental protect, a floral arrangement would cost over HK$ 1,000 to be on display for a short time. It is not economical. The goal of our funeral committee is first environmental protection and secondly to save more cash for the child."
