Dear So Har,
I am devastated by the sad news. I Whatsapp’ed him in October and he was still in very good spirit and positive about his treatment. He was forever smiling and so gentlemanly and I had always looked up to him as my big brother. I am very glad that I was able to see him last year during the Wah Yan Scouting Reunion.
I remember clearly that William came to Hong Kong House to pick me up very early in the morning, the next day I was first time in London for an English course for 1 year. True to his scouting spirit, he mapped out every step for my “Getting to know London in a day”. I was so equipped with it that I became an expert guide for the rest of our group. Thank You, William, A Great Scout.

“May he RIP.” ~ Stephen Ng Tin Hoi
“He will be missed by all!” ~ Andrew Kam Cheung Lung
“Indeed bad news!”
Haven’t seen Wat since the early 70’s but the time we spent together in scouting was as vivid as yesterday’s happenings. When I was PL of Antelope, Wat was my Patrol Second and was thoroughly helpful. His big build rendered him always took up a lot more stuff… carrying the heavy canvas tent, bamboos, etc than other scouts in walking the 8-miles journeys… and many other fond memories.
Indeed miss him, and wish him peace and happiness in the kingdom of God.” ~
