After a courageous battle with cancer, Sing Yip Chung of Stratford passed away in his 71st year on Sunday, September 1, 2019 at Victoria Hospital in London, surrounded by his loving family.
Son of the late Henry and Mai Chung, Sing was born in Xinhui, China and moved to Listowel, ON at age four. Beloved husband of Ivy (née Liu), the love of his life to whom he was married for 46 years. They shared countless adventures around the globe and close to home. Dearly loved father to Laureen Chung (Blaine Mohninger) and Andrew Chung (Nicole Rider). Dear brother to Nancy Chung (Pat White), Linda Joe (Jack), and half-brother to Bo Sim Chew (Paul) and Carol Lee. Adored Papa to Malie and Kai Mohninger, and Sebastien and Lucy Chung — grandkids who thought the world of him. Sing was a kind and insightful uncle to many nieces and nephews, and a much-loved friend to a community of people far and wide.
After graduating from Dentistry at University of Toronto in 1973, Sing and Ivy settled in Stratford where he served his community with compassion and integrity as a dentist for 46 years. He was also on the Ontario Dental Association Board for many years. He loved to hike and canoe, race down ski slopes, play tennis and golf, sing in the Stratford Concert Choir (37 years), cheer on the Blue Jays, travel the world with Ivy, and compete with friends and grandkids at board games.
The family would like to sincerely thank Dr. Younus and Dr. Latosinsky at Victoria Hospital and Dr. Martin for their dedicated care of Sing. To the staff at the London Regional Cancer Program and Victoria Hospital 9th floor surgical ward: Without your kindness and compassion this journey would have been all the more difficult. Thank you for all the care you provide patients when they walk through your doors in their time of need.
