Obituary for Shuyuan Chen

陈树元先生 生平


Shuyuan Chen’s Life

Mr. Shuyuan Chen was born on January 1st, 1937 and passed away on February 19th, 2021 at the age of 84. Shuyuan was the eldest son among five siblings in a large traditional Chinese family in Changzhou, Jiangsu, China. Shuyuan graduated from Changzhou Senior High School and was admitted to the Beijing Forestry University. He was one of the first generation of students with post-graduate research and education experience. Following graduation from graduate school, Shuyuan worked at the Chinese Academy of Sciences at both the Institute of Applied Ecology in Shenyang and at the Institute of Botanical Research in Nanjing. He was a respected scientist who conducted research on environmental protection and attained rare full professorship for his research accomplishments. Following his retirement, he immigrated to the United States to live with his younger son and has been a very active volunteer in community and senior services, a continued reflection of his caring and benevolent character.

Shuyuan was married to Mrs. Ying Shi. Together, they were loving and caring parents to three children and raised them both with thrift and diligence. All three children are well-educated with college degrees and have since assumed successful professional careers.

Shuyuan was handsome, knowledgeable and amiable – a man of true wisdom. He demonstrated great enthusiasm and kindness in his relationships with others. In life, he was filial to elders, and in career, he was skillful, meticulous and tremendously hardworking. His generosity, optimism and remarkable strength in the face of hardship have garnered him enormous respect and adoration from all family members, friends, and colleagues alike. He established strong family values and, along with his charisma and charm, has become a true role model for future generations.

The first half of his life was marked by significant hardship and adversity due to constant political turmoil, social instabilities and even war during that era in China. However, he remained firm in his pursuit for a better life for both him and his family. He carried forward that belief into the latter half of his life, eager for both justice and righteousness. He loved his wife, children and colleagues. While Shuyuan may not have accomplished monumental feats in his lifetime, he never ceased to demonstrate to future generations both the true meaning of kindness and the value of a superb work ethic. He will forever be remembered.

May Shuyuan be blessed by friends and family up in heaven.

Shuyuan Chen is survived by his wife Ying Shi, three loving children and 5 grandchildren
