Farewell Uncle Simon (Aug 22, 2012)

Posted August 22, 2012 – 11:44 pm

The morning after we returned from Loon Lake, we received the most terrible news – our dear friend Simon Chan, who had been in the hospital for the past three weeks, was declining rapidly, and was not likely to make it through the day. Simon passed away at the UCSF Medical Center on the evening of August 22, from complications related to autoimmune disease. It was a terrible loss for all of us, and our ongoing condolences go out to the Chans.

We are very lucky to have known Simon, and have him as a friend. Our favorite recent video of Simon was the one taken on the new year’s day 2012, and the memory of laughing, happy Uncle Simon that was captured playing with Winston in this clip will be treasured forever:
