Peter M. Hsu, Age 81, passed away July 30, 2020.

Born July 20, 1939 in Xiamen (Amoy), China, he graduated from The Diocesan Boys’ School in 1958 in Hong Kong. He emigrated from Hong Kong to the United States in 1958. Peter earned his BA from Hope College in Holland, Michigan in 1962.

He was a devoted church member throughout his life and served as Deacon and Trustee to the Chinese Gospel Church in Philadelphia. Growing up near the ocean fostered a love for all things nautical and beach-related. Not only did he love trips to the beach, he also enjoyed fishing, crabbing, and boating. In addition to his love of the water, Peter enjoyed dinners with close friends and family as well as photography.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Shu-Chi Hsu (father) and Yat Mui Chan (mother). He is survived by Betty Hsu, his son, Christopher Hsu, MD, daughter-in-law, Julie, and granddaughter, Alexis.
