On September 20, 2019 Su Beng passed away at the Taipei Medical University Hospital. He would have been 101 on November 9th. I had planned to be back in Taiwan for Su Beng’s 101st birthday months before learning that his health had declined. As soon I learned about the seriousness of his condition, I booked a flight back to Taiwan in hopes that I’d make it back in time to see him before he passed. Alas it was his time.
Though he is now gone from this earth he will not be forgotten. His legacy and spirit will live on in all those he has touched and inspired.
