Franklin was my very first mentor in my career at
Queen Elizabeth Hospital between 1985 and 1991. Franklin had taught me thoroughly in all aspects of oral and maxillofacial surgery. Franklin had set a very high standard for himself especially in the operation theatre. He was a man of integrity and a meticulous surgeon who had provided important services to the general public. Franklin always emphasised the phrase that the first principle in surgery was: " Do no harm ", which I had learnt and later on taught my medical students and surgical trainees.
During my six years of apprenticeship with Franklin, he had supported me in successfully obtaining two scholarships for post-graduate surgical training and application for a place to read medicine in the UK.
Some people might think that Franklin was just a strict and serious clinician, in fact, he was very athletic, knowledgeable,adventurous and travelled widely throughout the world. He had balanced his work life and family life really well.
It is an honour to have been one of Franklin's students and friends.

We have been honoured to pour coffee into the cup of Dr. Franklin CHAN after service every Sunday in the past 13 years.  The broad smile on his face is the symbol of his gentleness and kindness. Franklin’s chat was always boosted with a sense of humour and wisdom. Chatting with him has always been fun and inspiring.
Got no clue why God decided to bring Franklin back to His side so abruptly. Yet we know our Living God has His own plan and we’ll meet again someday in the Kingdom of God, where joy prevails forever.
Rest in peace, Franklin!

I joined the hospital dental service in 1991 and Dr Franklin Chan was my first boss and mentor in my OMS career.  I still remembered his surgical genius, stamina and courage, especially facing difficult and complex cases. He is a man of integrity, kind and sincere to his friends and patients. He is always willing to share his experience with colleagues and juniors. He also sets a very good example in continual education as he never ceases to keep abreast of all the advances in Dentistry by attending various scientific meetings, even years after his retirement. He will certainly be missed by all of us. May Franklin rest in peace and may God comfort his wife and family.  Yiu-kai WONG
