Obituary of Tsun Yih Huang

Tsun-Yih Huang(黃存義), 100, of Franklin Park (South Brunswick), New Jersey was taken to Glory on Thursday, February 4, 2021 at home in Franklin Park.


Tsun-Yih was born in 1920 in Tài County of Jiāngsū Province (江蘇省泰縣), China. He finished his college education of Mechanical Engineering in 1945 at “Jiang-Su College (江蘇 學院)”. After his graduation, he taught math in Jiāxìng City of Zhèjiāng Province (浙江省嘉興)for several years.


He went to Taiwan in 1949 where he met his wife Ling-Chi Hu (胡玲琦)in Taipei and was a professor in Taipei Institute of Technology (台北工專). In 1966, he moved to Montreal, Canada. The following year, he came to the United States to complete his Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering at NJIT (formerly known as Newark College of Engineering, in Newark, NJ). He was employed by the City Of New York as a Mechanical Engineer for 25 years, until his retirement in 1995.


Tsun-Yih was a member of Rutgers Community Christian Church (若歌教會), since its founding in 1978 until his passing, where he made many friends in the past 43 years. In the Lord's church, he had done a good service for decades and had glorified the Name of God.


He was always there for his family, and he attended to his wife's every need during the 8 years that she was ill, staying by her side until her passing in 2004. In the following years, he made pilgrimages to Israel twice, and returned to China in 2006 to visit his many relatives and to travel the country. This was the first time he went back since he bid farewell to his homeland in 1949.


In his younger years, photography was his favorite hobby. Through the camera's lens, he was able to record the good times of family members and tidbits of his children growing up, leaving many fond memories to his friends and future generations. His long-time hobby had been reading and writing, playing Jumble and his Chinese Calligraphy was exemplary. He was handy in fixing what's broken around the house.


After retirement, he enjoyed spending his free time at South Brunswick Senior Center. He went three times a week to participate in various aerobic exercises, playing table tennis and pool, to keep himself fit and occupied.


He lost his mother at the tender age of three yet grew up to be an independent gentleman. In the later stages of the illness, he fought hard and bravely, and his unyielding spirit supported him until the end. He not only was a kind father but also an ultimate fighter throughout his life! He had a mild temperament and a good sense of humor, both were keys to his longevity.


Predeceased by his wife Ling-Chi Huang (黃胡玲琦), he is survived by two daughters (Catherine C. Huang 黃哲文and Helen C. Huang 黃哲明), two sons (John R. 黃睿and George C. 黃智), two daughters-in-law (Bin Bin 仲彬彬and Lorain), four grandchildren (Kristen, Joshua, Sarah, and Christian), as well as many other close relatives in China.


A Visitation and Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, February 13, 2021 from 9:00-11:00 AM at M.J. Murphy Funeral Home, 616 Ridge Road in Monmouth Junction. Burial will follow in Franklin Memorial Park, North Brunswick on Saturday, February 13, 2021 at 12:00 pm.

黃伯伯一直是紐澤西州「若歌教會(RCCC)」的成員,直到他逝世的那一天為止,在過去的四十三年中他結交了許 多好朋友。 在主的大家庭裡他做了幾十年的美好服事,並榮耀了上帝的名!上帝的天使們必定與他在天堂與主同樂。


在黃伯母生病的八年中,黃伯伯一直守在她的身邊,不離不棄,直到2004 年黃伯母去世。 在隨後的幾年中,他兩次前往以色列朝聖,並於2006 年回到中國探親兼旅遊,這是自1949 年告別家 以鄉 以 來,黃伯伯首次踏上他出生的故土。
