Anthony.is the kindest and gentlest person we have ever known, a man of high level of integrity and a man very committed to his family.

Anthony will always be remembered in our prayer. Take care and stay healthy.
Pat and Antonio
Our deepest condolences for the loss of a good man and a true friend. We will dearly miss Anthony.
I was very shocked and saddened to hear of the sudden passing of Anthony when Agnes sent me the message in the early morning of Oct. 25. I have known Tony since the Wah Yan days; his father taught us Math. I recall Tony came to Ricci Hall at the HKU in 1962 and we stayed in the same hostel for a year before my graduation. Then I met him again at York Central Hospital, where we worked together and he often administered anaesthesia to my patients for ECT. He was a perfect gentleman, of great integrity, always kind and gentle in his care of people. He was a wonderful travel companion; our travel together to Paris and Russia on the river cruise was unforgettable. Tony was a fervent, devout Catholic, and he and Agnes brought up an exemplary family much admired by others.
We will surely miss Tony. He will be fondly remembered in our daily life, in our prayers and in our travel.
My heartfelt condolences to Agnes, Ignatius, and Elaine, and all other members of his beautiful family.
Dear Agnes, Elaine and Ignatius,
I am deeply saddened to hear of your loss. Dr. Ng introduced me to York Central Hospital over two decades ago. He offered me to work there when he was the Chief of Anaesthesia… and I stayed for over twenty years! Anthony was a dedicated and exemplary physician with the highest professional integrity, earning the respect of all who worked with him. At the same time, he was a modest man with traditional values and high moral principles. He was a true gentleman and served as an example for us all. I feel blessed to have known him as a trusted colleague and as a friend. Please accept my deepest condolences and sympathies at this most difficult time. Anthony has departed to a better place, and God shall give you the strength to overcome your pain. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. May fond memories and the love of those around you bring peace and serenity.

We will miss very much our great classmate, a real gentleman, and someone who is soft-spoken, always wearing a kind smile. We like to share the few words written by Fuk To for this sad occasion: “We are the tiny particles in the sandglass. One by one, each will go in a fixed time. Life is short and time is limited. Enjoy the gifts from God while you can, which are to love and be loved.” Anthony certainly has had full enjoyment of these. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him. Please accept our sincere condolences to Anthony’s family.
We send you sincere condolences in the loss of your beloved husband Anthony.

Anthony Ng is the most gentle and kind person we have ever met. All those who knows Anthony cannot but be touched by how he lived out his Catholic faith and beliefs in every aspect of his life: in his family, cirle of friends, and his professional medical practice in the field of anaesthesiology.
Agnes and Anthony has always been the perfect married couple that my husband C.L. and myself look up to as role models for ‘being there for one another’ in difficult times.
With the passing of Anthony, we have lost an ‘old faithful friend’.
We miss him dearly.

Dear Agnes, Ignatius, Elaine and children,
I am really saddened to learn that Anthony finally went to his next life, Heaven, after such a long illness. He was one of my first friends at University, a gracious and kind man and a true gentleman. We crossed paths again in Toronto where Anthony often arranged to have classmates and spouses meet. Perhaps without him then, many of us would not have stayed in touch. He was such a devout Catholic, a loving father and a perfect husband to Agnes.
I know you all
miss him terribly and will grieve but he will want you to move on. Agnes, stay in touch.
Anthony left us Goodness, a model to embrace Christ, a lifetime of service and compassion to his fellow brothers and sisters and an everlasting love for Agnes and his family. He has earned his place in the Kingdom of God. May his sweet soul take comfort.
