Memorial Service Invitation for Mr. Shigong Zhu

Our dear Mr. Shigong Zhu left his beloved wife Chengfeng Huang, three children, daughter-in-law, son-in-law and six grandchildren on January 1, 2022, at the age of 86.

Mr. Shigong Zhu was born in Shenyang, China in 1935. Throughout his life, he was loving, kind, intelligent in many areas, devoted to his family and others, and always enthusiastic about whatever he did. During his professional life as a senior engineer and the leading player in his technical team, he made many inventions and innovations. He once presided over the design and construction project of the cooling system for the first professional indoor ice rink in Shenyang, China, and made outstanding contributions to the economic development of the Northeast region of the country.

Mr. Shigong Zhu was a multi-talented and self-taught in mastering the piano, Chinese chess, calligraphy, and painting. Not only did he sing and play accordion in music to entertain others, but also had many accomplishments in calligraphy and Chinese chess and had many friends! In sports, he won the championship of the amateur group of table tennis competition in Heilongjiang Province and represented his company in numerous art performances held in Harbin.

After retiring, Mr. Shigong Zhu continued his music passion by teaching teenagers the accordion and keyboard. Many of his students went on to distinguished music careers, including one who attended China’s Central Conservatory of Music. He was awarded the honor of “Best Citizen in Harbin”. After moving to the United States 20 years ago, he began to study English year-round and actively integrated into the local cultural life. He loved gardening to grow vegetables, as well as actively participated in Chinese community activities in the Boston area. Throughout his life, he was self-sacrificing, optimistic, kind, encouraging, loving life, and was very responsible to his family. He educated three outstanding children, including graduates of Peking University and Harvard University.

We will deeply miss this caring husband, loving father and grandfather and we would welcome your attendance at a memorial service to commemorate his life on Thursday, January 6th, 2022.
