I was fortunate to work in Professor Lianhong Sun's lab as an undergraduate student at UMass Amherst. His enthusiasm, patience, and kindness were an inspiration to me. Without his help and encouragement, my research career would not be as diverse and successful as it is. Thank you Professor Lianhong Sun for allowing me to have those opportunities. I would not be where I am today without your help. My heart goes out to his family. Please know the profound impact he has had and that he is truly missed.

Lianhong was my PhD adviser at UMass Amherst and a great mentor. He was Intelligent, kind and thoughtful and helped shape me into the person I am today. I am a better person for having had him as my adviser and I am grateful that I was given the opportunity to work with him. He will be missed.

My lab was next to Prof. Sun's lab at UMass and we used to see each other from time to time. I was so shocked to hear such a kind person, talent scholar passed away with young age. I worried about him as I heard he was sick, however more and more positive news told by my friend made me feel encouraged and believe he would recover soon. There are still many his previous students’ laboratory notebooks kept in my office, I always thought he might need them someday. I feel so sorry this day will never come now. Wish Prof. Sun gets peace in heaven and my condolence to his family.

I was so shocked to hear this. I got to know Prof. Sun when at UMass 10 years ago. He was such a kind person! We have lost a good friend and the world has lost such a brilliant scholar! 孙教授一路走好,主内安息! 请家人节哀,保重!

This is shocking and a very very sad news. I was the first PhD student who graduated from his group at Umass, Amherst. I always admired and inspired by his dedication and hard work. . My deep heart felt condolences to his family. May god rest his soul in peace

刚知道,很震惊。最后一次见孙老师是13年的冬天,那时的他已经开始了与病魔的抗争。他平静地讲述自己的病情,让我意外也感伤。那么坚强的人离开喜爱的事业,热爱的生活和挚爱的家人该是多么的不舍啊。。。 请节哀,他的爱会一直陪伴你们的!

Prof. Sun taught me at UMass Amherst, but to me he was way more than a fantastic teacher. His kindness, encouragement, guidance and supports endure and have always been greatly appreciated. Rest in Peace. 一路走好!

I was fortunate to know LIanhong during his time at UMass Amherst. We had children the same ages that attended Amherst Montessori School. Lianhong was such a kind person. I remember when my 2nd son was born, he and his wife Linda paid a visit to our house, brightening our day. My heart goes out to all of his friends and family in this difficult time.

A wonderful person, so warm and kind. He was truly a loving and caring father and husband. He fought so hard, was so brave and family meant everything to him. Be strong Linda, Hao Hao and Timmy. Please know that we all send our love and condolences. I know this is truly a difficult time. We send huge hugs, kisses and love.

Lianhong was my "office" next door neighbor at UMass Amherst. I was impressed by his depth of heart and mind while here as a professor. I was sorry to see him go when he left here, but not nearly as sorry as I am right now to learn of the sad news of Lianhong's passing at such a very young age. I wish peace for Lianhong and his family in this very difficult time.

This tribute was added by Jasmine Li on 2nd June 2016 "一年前认识了孙教授,那时他已经被病魔折磨了三年。他的坚强乐观深深地打动了我。孙教授一边坚持工作,一边接受各种新药的化疗,对化疗引起的各种副作用他选择的是忍耐和抗争。作为一个丈夫和两个幼小孩子的父亲,他怎么舍得丢下挚爱的妻子和还在懵懂中的孩子。被病痛折磨得不好休息的深夜时间,他全部用来走路和跑步,他多么想多陪陪妻子和孩子们。拼尽了全力的孙教授休息了。孙教授一路走好!家人安好!"

连宏学弟、昨晚太太回忆起2002左右你引领我们一家三口在Caltech Campus漫步的情景。看了学弟的照片、依然是那么亲切。粗算了一下学弟的求学之路长达15年之久、学术成绩斐然,和内大最杰出的校友之一张杰学长(现上海交大校长,亦为中科院研究生)比肩。会协助郑杰&苏宁学弟操办一些事宜。请连宏学弟放心、天堂路上一路走好!
