In Memoriam: Gary Ching (Class of 1986)
It is with deep sorrow and heavy hearts that we announce the untimely passing of Gary Ching, a distinguished member of our Wah Yan family. Gary's journey with Wah Yan began in his Form 1 classroom in 1981, where, although brief, his connection to our alma mater grew immensely over the years.
Gary was not just an alumnus; he was an unwavering supporter and one of the longest serving Past Presidents within the PSA Council. His dedication and commitment to the Wah Yan spirit were unparalleled. Many may remember him not only as a stalwart alumnus but as the son of the late Philip Ching, a prominent figure in our Wah Yan world.
A man of clear and independent ideas, Gary embodied the true essence of the PSA. He was vocal about his thoughts, principled in his beliefs, yet always open-minded to diverse opinions. With a seasoned background in finance, Gary seamlessly blended meticulous attention to detail with a visionary understanding of the bigger picture.
From 2013, Gary selflessly devoted ten years of his life to the role of PSA Honorary Treasurer, contributing his financial expertise after completing his terms as PSA Chairman in 2011 and President in 2013. His days were dedicated to Wah Yan, and his nights were filled with love for our alma mater. Gary's love extended beyond the physical walls of Wah Yan; it reached out to the Jesuits, whom he admired deeply.
Gary's passion for bringing people together was evident in the regular gatherings he organized, celebrating the birthdays of various Jesuit Fathers. He orchestrated moments that brought smiles to countless faces, single-handedly fostering a sense of community and camaraderie.
A man of fine taste, Gary made no secret of his love for good food, a drink or two, and engaging conversations. His image, with a smile on his face, holding a glass of red wine in one hand and savouring a fine lamb curry, lingers vividly in our minds.
Gary's premature departure leaves a void at Wah Yan, taking away a great alumnus, a dear friend, and an exceptionally good person from our midst. Though sadness envelops us, we find solace in knowing that Gary departed peacefully, spared from the burdens of suffering.
Gary Ching, Class of 1986, Past President, and son of the late Uncle Philip, your absence leaves a profound void. We will miss you dearly, but we find comfort in the belief that we shall meet again, soon enough. May you rest in eternal peace.
