I-Chun Chen

i-chun chen
Mr. Chen I Chun was born in February 15, 1924. Due to the hardships of life during War World II, our grandma encouraged him to pursue his dream to earn his education. He went aboard to study at University of Waseda in Japan after graduating middle high, and lived with his sister, our beloved aunt, who worked in Japan at that time. After graduation from the University, he enlisted in the Japanese military for a while. After the war, the Japanese economy was in shambles and there was an extreme shortage of materials. But he worked hard and tried every means to make ends meet. He was young and handsome, despised the circumstances, he didn't forget to enjoy his life; these were his most memorable days. And to him, Japan was his second home. At the age of thirty, he returned to Taiwan to start a business. The Qingwen Trading Company, a wholesaler, imported Japanese professional books and Japanese magazines. In the same year, he met and wed Ms. Lin Fong Chao, our beloved mother. She completed his life, and gave him 6 daughters and one son. Even with his exhausting and busy work schedule, he would always find the time to help his children with their schoolwork - most particularly mathematics. If he did find a day to spare, he would spend it with his wife and children - taking them to the mountains or to the sea shores. Although these moments were not as frequently as we'd like, each moment was precious In 2002, he and his wife immigrated to the United States, living with their son, Mr. Chen Hung Chi and daughter-in-law, Ms. Tammie in California. Spending time with their children and grandchildren brought them true happiness. Mr. Chen's personality can be described as cheerful yet studious. He loved all kinds of music and a variety of artists. He played Sudoku in his free time, and loved to surf the internet. People who knew him well referred him as '3C Ogison', which is a reference to his affinity to technology. He loved to frequent the Japan Cultural Center in San Jose and Japan Town in San Francisco, bring home books to read and enjoyed the local sashimi. In the most recent years, he had been in and out of hospital frequently due to health conditions with his age. His second daughter and third daughter Shu Ying and Shu Hsun came to the United States to care and accompany him. His eldest daughter in Georgia, Juling, as well as his daughters in Taiwan, Shu Min, Chao Huang, Chao Chi would also visit as frequently as they could in order to share their love and care with him. On the morning of December 18, 2016, having fulfilled his responsibilities and obligations to this world, he relinquished his life and was summoned by God, Although it is difficult to accept his departure, we look forward to seeing him again, may him rest in peace.

  3. Dear Hung-Chi & Tammie,
    We were saddened to hear that your father passed away. Our thoughts are with you and your family.

  4. To my beloved Grandfather,

    Though I did not get the chance to know you well, it’s apparent to all that you’ve instilled exemplary characteristics in your children through your hard work and dedication. These characteristics have been passed on to your children’s children (including myself) and will be in our family for many generations to come.

    Thank you for all that you’ve done for our family. We all have wonderful memories of you and your bright smile, and I know these memories will sustain us in the coming days. You are the most self reliant and caring person I’ve ever met and you will forever live on in our memories and in our hearts.


  5. My dear father,
    As the eldest of your seven children, I was so blessed to have all the attention all the best things from you. I had let you down but you never gave up, helped me applying senior high and through the college. You’ve been so much patient with me, raise me up and become what I am today. I will miss you. bye for now.

  6. Grandpa,
    Although the moments we shared together were brief, I’ll always cherish each second. i can still taste the dirt and debris that hit my face while you rode your motorcycle through the streets of Taipei with me holding on for dear life. Although I never admitted it, those were the most exciting and scariest moments. I even bought my own motorcycle to share the same excitement. Fast forward in time, im so glad and blessed to introduce Christelle to you. She, like I, loves you. She loves your always-positive attitude, your warm smile, and your love towards family. Although you may be gone from this world, you’ll never be more than a thought away in our memories.

  7. 親愛的爸爸,感謝您給予我滿滿的愛,每當我教采芸數學時都會想起,我小時候您不厭其煩地一遍又一遍的開導我愚頓的觀念,當我在人生或事業上遇到瓶頸,才體會到您養育我們姐弟的辛勞,而今您的責任已經圓滿了,希望您在另個世界當個無憂無慮的快樂天使。

    Our prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. May God gives you strength and comfort.
