The following article by Philip Chai has been in our 留言簿 since 3 August. It's now being posted here for all to see -- Blog Admin. 

Sad to hear the news. From Fr. Tseng's email, looks like Fr. O'Neill passed away peacefully in his sleep after having afternoon tea. I will always have fond memory of him. I didn't make the 2002 class reunion in HK, and the last time I saw him was the dinner gathering in Los Altos, Calif in 1998 with Peter Sien, Clement Luk, Patrick Hsu, Dennis Chu, Paul Lee, Vincent Chu. I remember he told us the story how Butt Chak-cheung got his name "Yondani", but now I forgot the story! We will all miss him. May he rest in peace!

Most of us had been in Fr.O'Neill's class during our years at Wah Yan Kowloon.
Many of us including myself have been lucky to be in his class of 2D and 4A.
The attached are the fondest memory of him while I traveled from Los Angeles, San Francisco, flew to Calgary Canada for the Wah Yan Conference and then stop by Vancouver to visit with our classmates.
 
I have observed how religious he was and so spiritual. He brought along stuffs with him that he served mass every day on the road privately. He was so funny in enjoying the ice cream cone in Vancouver, purchased by our beloved Raymond Lau 劉漢傑.

Up to now most of the pictures of Fr. O'Neill posted on this blog were taken in the past 10 years.  We all remembered him as a handsome young Jesuit on the Wah Yan Kowloon campus.  Thanks to our classmate Dominic Lee, we can refresh our memory a bit.  He located a group photo taken after the Speech Day in 1962 and asked me to share it with everyone.  The first photo is an enlargement of Fr. O'Neill from the same picture.  You can click on the group picture to open to a larger picture for easy viewing.  One more click will give you its maximum resolution. 

If anyone of you wishes to share your old pictures of Fr. O'Neill, please email me or click on the heading of this article and then leave a message at the end of the article as indicated.

PictureThis is an excerpt from an obituary in Singapore:

Father Tom O'Neill, S.J. passed away peacefully on 30 July 2009

Fr O'Neill was born on 30 January 1924, entered the Society of Jesus on 6 September 1941 and was ordained on 29 July 1955. He took his final vows on 2 February 1959. 

For the 2002 reunion, James Li was in charge of arranging Fr. O'Neill's and Fr. Tseng's trip from Singapore to Hong Kong.  James hosted a dinner party at Times Square for all the Wah Yan Jesuits after the Singapore visitors arrived. [click 閱讀全文 below left to see the whole article].

It was quite a privilege to have Fr. O'Neill as our Form Master in 4A.  I liked his joyful gait when he walked into the class; the way he pronounced "nature" as "natuer" instead of "nacher"; the cheerful way he conducted himself when teaching (just close your eyes and picture him in class vs the others). What a teacher to have !
