My sincere prayers and condolences to the Fung family. You father and the Fung family will always be remembered. May God bless you all.
I was not acquainted with Mr. Fung, but was a classmate to his son, Pak Kau. Thank you Sir for raising a very likable and kind son.
Mr. Fung left a wonderful legacy in his children. All of the boys are exceptional human beings. And, although the boys would disagree, I’m sure that Mr. Fung could out fish them all. Mariana, our State and the US have been blessed as a result of the Fungs immigrating. He is a man to be honored.
Remembering Mr. aging as a kind and hard working business man. One of his son’s Pak was a classmate and friend. RIP
I remember him as a kid. I also remember Fung Market. One of his sons was my Classmate. RIP
Thinking on Mr. Joe respect and love!!! I’ll miss him “Hi Charles girl” and his smiling face!!!
You and your wife were wonderful and kind people. Everybody was somebody who matters. Thank you for the best lunch meat counter ever. Thank you and your family for your kindness. Rest well.
We all will miss you so much and remember you, “Big Uncle.” You were that to us in more ways than one - in name, in person and by example. Now as you have left this earth among us, your spirit will dwell in our hearts forever. We will never forget the values that you helped to instill in us and the impact you had on each of our lives. We will always cherish the fond memories of growing up around all the cousins with you and “Big Auntie” at the store. You were another parent who taught us to be hard workers and respectful of one another. Thank you. Love you always. Your niece. Jackie (Young) Laberer 😘❤️

We'll miss you Dad. Absolutely the hardest working and most tenacious person I know. A hero to many, you have a resolve to accomplish your goals like no one else. Your work ethic is second to none. Your determination is matchless. And you have been a great inspiration to many who knows you. You took a situation where you were given very little and your choice was to become a statistic or build a foundation for your family. Your choice to move to a new country not only created an incredible legacy but it forged a foundation vital to the success of future family generations that will be Christ-centered. Thank you Dad for all your sacrifices, for teaching us, by example, what hard work means, and for your dedication and focus on providing an education to all of us. We will miss you, and we will always remember you. With love, honor and respect,Pete Fung
