September 3, 1934 ~ January 29, 2008
Teh-Hong Hsu (Bruce) was a beloved brother and uncle who passed away in Torrance, California at Torrance Memorial Hospital on January 29, 2008 at the age of 73, due to an acute illness related to his cancer. Bruce had cancer for the past 20 years, but the cancer was in remission or developed quite slowly during this time, so he was able to carry out a normal life, except for the last year of his life. Bruce bravely fought his cancer during this last year, and he will be remembered for his tenacity in attempting to fulfill his final goals in life before he passed away. Bruce was born in Kiangsu, China in 1934. Bruce attended college, graduated, and then went on to graduate studies in which he earned a Master's Degree in Engineering. Bruce worked as an engineer at private firms and then settled down as a Federal Government employee located in Arizona, where he worked for many years until his retirement. Bruce's favorite pastime was to play the games at Las Vegas and Laughlin, where he amassed considerable winnings over the years. Upon his retirement, he purchased a very nice 2400 square foot ranch house in Las Vegas in a new part of town. This house was very roomy for a bachelor. Bruce was very happy in Las Vegas and encouraged relatives to come visit and stay at his new house for vacation. Bruce was a wonderful tour guide for the sights, sounds, and action on the Vegas Strip. Bruce was also a very able tour guide for showing off the surrounding tourist traps, such as the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam. Bruce was never married and did not have any children, and his relatives will always speak of him as "a strongly independent spirit." He is survived by three brothers and a sister and by three nephews and four nieces. All of these close relatives will truly miss him. A memorial service will be held at Pacific Crest Cemetery in Redondo Beach at 11:00 AM on February 9, 2008.
