Obituary

On Sunday, February 6, 2022, Dr. Chen-Fu Yu, aged 78 of Clarksville, Maryland passed away peacefully at home with his family at his side. He was born in 1943 to Mr. Shi-Min Yu and Mrs. Chen-Mei Lin in the town of Fugang, Taiwan. While he came from a small town, his dreams brought him to places throughout the US and the world, including an Applied Mathematics PhD from Brown University in Rhode Island, a professorship at University of California Los Angeles, a nuclear engineering job at Siemens in Germany, and finally fatherhood in Howard County, Maryland.

Dr. Yu had an impassioned mind and spirit as he enjoyed churchgoing, backgammon, nature, and the night sky.

He was a member of the Chinese Bible Church of Howard County. He was a loving Christian, brother, friend, husband, and father.

He is survived by his wife Mrs. Lau Kwai Yu, his daughter Dr. Katherine Yu, his sisters Mrs. Ju-Mei Yu and Mrs. Man-Mei Yu, and his brothers Mr. Chen-Lu Yu, Mr. Chen-Gwei Yu, and Mr. Chen-Qing Yu. He was preceded in death by his mother, father, and his sister Mrs. Shu-Mei Yu.
