Uncle Chen was one of my parents dearest friends for as long as I can remember. His work with the OCA in Pittsburgh and the AAPA showed me that Asian Americans could indeed be leaders for social justice, and inspired my own choice to be an activist and educator. My mother sends her love and regards - he will be dearly missed.

Dear Dad, you are a hero, a fighter, a loving husband and father, and a remarkable person. Your unusual journey in China, Taiwan, and America nurtured your wisdom and vision, and left you a kind heart. Your voice for injustice and courage for fighting enlightened us. Your persistence and dedication led children by example. We appreciate you built a blessed family for us all. Wish you eternal peace in heaven. You will be forever missed. — Angela

Andy is a scholar and gentleman we all respected and we'll deeply miss him. Our prayers and thoughts are with Veronica and the entire family.

Andy was a man of immense talent and drive. In his low key, yet powerful ways, Andy enjoyed much success in his profession of educational psychology. His scholarly publications and leadership role in the Psychology Organization were well recognized. He also aggressively addressed the practical issues of being an Asian American and an immigrant. He selflessly served in many roles including the National Presidency of the Organization of Chinese Americans (OCA). His vision guided OCA well into the 21st century and set its strategic growth for many subsequent years.

I have such fond memories of Mr. Chen as our neighbor in Timberly Heights, especially driving Andrea and I to and from tennis practice. I extend my greatest sympathies to Veronica, Tom, Herald, and Andrea and I will be thinking of all of you and your families today. - Sarah Jane (Slezak) Wallace

             journeys

Remembering the joy of a special friendship and seeing all our children grow and travel through to wonderful adulthoods .
Recalling sadly encouraging you to move to a new home in your future but happy for all the great retirement adventures you enjoyed.
Thinking about the joy of back and forth messages of the arrivals of all our amazing grandchildren.
Admiring the gentle warrior journeying for justice and respect for all in his lifetime and as a legacy in spirit for all of us.
Love,
Nancy and Jim Neely

I am reading Andy's book and regret that I didn't meet him in life. Veronica and I were classmates at Maryknoll. Our teenage friendship remains memorable. Carry on, dear Veronica! We are here for you and feel your pain.
You chose a good partner in life.

Andy is an extremely considerate and generous person. I met him first time in 1963 in New York while he was dating Veronica. Helen and I were treated front row seats to see ‘Sound of Music’ on Broadway the next day we landed. That was the first time I experienced live Broadway musical and felt in love with this performing art ever since. What a treat for a poor foreign student who was struggling to pay for college expenses!
We have lost a life-long friend and an extraordinary person.

We surely miss you Andy. Such a great wonderful gentleman we all admire with so much achievements. Rest in peace.

Andy was a major figure in Asian American psychology. He served as President of the Asian American Psychological Association and was a forceful advocate for the rights and well-being of Asian Americans and other ethnic minority groups. I admired his courage, persistence, and sense of social justice. He achieved a legacy that will always be remembered.
