Veteran actor Wong Chung (original name: Chiang Pui Kwan) earlier passed away from intestinal cancer at age 75. Yesterday Taoist ceremony held for his funeral at the Universal Funeral Parlor. The casket was then transported to Cape Collinson Crematorium for cremation. Wong Chung's younger brother "Big Mouth Ching" Wong Ching was in Australia and unable to return to Hong Kong to attend, but sent flowers. Cousin John Chiang Dai Wai already presented incense on the night before the funeral. Many friends and family were overseas and unable to return to Hong Kong to send Wong Chung on his final journey.
Wong Chung's nephew Cheung Hok Man said that his uncle liked to stay low key and simple. He also declined to accept the media interview. The hall was simply decorated. Insiders like Chow Yun Fat, Jackie Chan, Chiang Dai Wai, Fong Ping, Nina Paw Hee Ching, Andrew Lau Wai Keung, the Hong Kong Performing Artists Guild, the Hong Kong Directors' Guild and others sent floral arrangements. Kent Cheng Juk Si, Ti Lung and his wife Tao Man Ming, director Cheung Kwok Ming attended to bid their late friend farewell. Cheng Juk Si entered the hall alone without accepting any interview. Ti Lung and his wife arrived together. He said to reporters, "This buddy of mine didn't like to make a big deal, he liked being low key. I wish him peace and joy, far from reversed dreams, without any fear."
