I have known Prof Chan in the International Statistical Conference in Australia since 1996. He is so kind and positive, and he is also a caring mentor. I take this opportunity to express my deepest condolences to Professor L.K. Chan’s family.

I'm so sad to hear that news. You have been an inspiration to us throughout your tenure as dean. I have many fond memories of you for undertaking EMBA residential trips and will always remember them. You will always be in my heart. Rest in peace, Professor Chen! Deep condolences to all family members.

What a huge loss to the academic world and I believe Professor Chan would rest in heaven with God. 

My condolence to his family especially his wife as I worked for her during her stay in Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education as my superior.

In 1972, FungYee was my fellow student at Imperial College Physics Department. Bertha and David were only 3 and 4 years old. LaiK visited often at their student flat in Evelyn Gardens, South Kensington. For fifty years, the whole family has been our steadfast family friends.

LaiK and FungYee are the best friends one can hope for - sincere, generous and loyal.

Although we live on the opposite side of the world, we managed to see them, and sometimes with their retinue of offsprings, in Macau, HK, LA, London.

They stayed with us in 2016. Here are their nostalgic moments of IC - in Evelyn Gardens, IC Physics Department and with ex IC colleagues.

LaiK had plenty of fun and had plenty of love all his life. We envy him and we will never ever forget him.

I have known Lai for at least 35 years, as an associate in the same profession.
 More than a scholar and a good teacher, he has impressed me as a person.
 Very friendly, generous ,helpful and positive in attitude.
  His passing is a great loss to us . He will be fondly remembered.

I admire Prof L.K. Chan's ability to look at the world in a positive way.

He frequently mentioned the things /persons that/whom he was grateful for.

Focusing on positive happenings help us become more positive and feel happier.

Rest in Peace. Professor Chan.

My deepest condolences to Professor L.K. Chan’s family.

Though I never study under Prof Chan, I had the good fortune to go to the same school as Leo, and then Bertha/David also studied in the US. Over time, my family and Prof Chan's family have gotten to know each other well.  He is a very loving dad and a great teacher - and his family is wonderful. We will miss him dearly.

I am deeply saddened to learn that Professor L.K. Chan passed away. I will never forget his enthusiastic teaching at U of M and his recommendation letter for my postgraduate study at UWO. He is a very nice, helpful and highly respected teacher. Rest in peace, Professor Chan.

Dr. Chan had supervised 10 Ph.D. students in his career and he mentioned to me that he was especially proud of two of them - the very first one and the very last one, The first one graduated from University of Western Ontario, got a teaching job at the Department of Statistics, University of Manitoba and did very well in his 37 years career in every aspect - teaching, research and administration; and the last one, she got a academic position at Cambridge University right after her graduation from the City University of Hong Kong.

I am deeply saddened to learn this heart-breaking news today. I have been planning to back to HK and visit you again. Now, there will be no more chances to say 'Thank You' in person for the book you sent to me in September.

You are such a great mentor and a father-like professor to me. It's my honor to be one of your PhD students. What I learnt from you has been and will continue to guide me through my life.

Miss you forever, Professor Chan!

Rest in Peace.

I am really sad to hear the passing of Prof L K Chan. Prof Chan is a noble man. He recruited me during his last year as Dean of Faculty of Business into City University of Hong Kong. Although I did not have the privilege of working with him, I was very much moved by Prof Chan's warm and encouraging words during our encounters, which have motivated me to pursue excellence in my career. I am thankful our paths have crossed. Rest in peace, Prof Chan!
