It is with deep sadness we annouce the passing of our dear friend and Contributor of the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre, Dr. Lewis Hong Chow.. We proudly honour Dr. Lewis Hong Chow's accomplishments in an exhibit at the Museum.
CHOW, Lewis Hong
Peacefully with Edmond and family by his side on Friday, June 26, 2015 at age 97. Dearly loved husband of the late Susie. Cherished father of Peggy Tam-Tao (Hardy), the late Linda von Eicken (the late Tom) and Edmond (Susan). Loving grandfather to Michael, Robert, Andrew, Tamiko, Vanessa, Kimberly, Betina, Kathleen, Daniel, Jacqueline, William and Justin. Dear brother of Hazel and uncle to many nieces and nephews. Lewis has his place in history helping American aviatrix, Jacqueline Cochran, become the first woman to break the sound barrier in a Canadair F-86 Sabre jet in 1953; Lewis was proud that one of his beloved granddaughters is named after her. Lewis' 50+ years of community service included leadership roles in the building of two Chinese hospitals in Montreal (1965 and 1999), as well as a prominent role at the Ottawa Heart Institute. Friends are invited to visit the Central Chapel of Hulse, Playfair & McGarry, 315 McLeod Street (at O'Connor), Ottawa on Monday, June 29 from 9 a.m. until service time in the Chapel at 10 a.m. followed by interment at Beechwood Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario or the Montreal Chinese Hospital would be appreciated.
