Daniel Jerome CHUNG

It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of our beloved Daniel Jerome Chung of Edmonton Alberta at the age of 38 years old on Tuesday, April 26, 2022. Daniel was born on January 29, 1984, in Edmonton, Alberta Canada. He was a beloved son, brother, uncle, grandson, cousin, friend, and talented chess player. 

“He is survived by his mother, Patricia Henry, as well as his brother, Christopher Chung, sister, Keisha Charles (Rodney), and his grandmothers, Kathy Harper-Hall (Barbados) and Monica Millin (Edmonton). He will also be fondly remembered by his Aunts, Marlene, Juliette (Barbados), Winsome (USA), Violet, Dian (Edmonton, Uncles, Patrick and Roydon (Jamaica) Robert (Edmonton), his nephew, Anthony, nieces, Maria and Khaleesi (Edmonton) various grandaunts, granduncles, numerous cousins that loves him more than words can express.  Daniel also leaves behind too many friends and other relatives to list around Edmonton, Calgary, BC, and throughout the world.

Daniel Jerome Chung was predeceased by his father Daniel Emanuel Chung.

In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations to be sent via e-transfer to his mother, Patricia Saunders at mizpat2010@gmail.com or mail to 15407 – 105 Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta T5P 4R3 Canada to help offset additional funeral expenses.

Daniel loved building things from a very young age and would disappear for hours only to find him alone in his room or with his two friends, Kareem and Jonothan somewhere with many different items that he would gather from various places to use to build his contraptions. Daniel loved playing chess.  He sometimes would sit in his room and play chess even by himself or with anyone who would challenge him to a game. Daniel had a humongous interest in stocks/bonds and investments and would often try his hands in these areas. 

Pointe West Cremation & Funeral Service Limited has been entrusted with funeral arrangements.  

Family and Public Viewing will be held at Pointe West Cremation & Funeral Service Limited, located at 15305 – 112 Avenue NW on Thursday, May 19th, 2022 from 5-9 p.m.

A public Celebration of Life will be held at Saints Church (formerly WECA), located at 6315 – 199 Street, Edmonton, Alberta on Friday, May 20th, 2022 with the viewing of the body at 10:00 and celebration service at 11:00 am. The family encourages all who knew Daniel to attend to share and celebrate his life

Saying goodbye to one of my children was never the way things were meant to be, but here we are — and for Dan, we will go on as this is what he would have wanted.  Goodbye, Dan, we will always love and miss you!

    Doogie was one of the smartest Kids I knew while we were all growing up. Hence his nickname, “Doogie Houser”

    He would have new inventions at least once a month.

    As we grew older, every time I saw him, he would always greet me with a smile, a nod and a Hug.

    Much Love, Doogie

    I worked with Daniel many years ago at metalsmiths and stay in touch throughout the years. He was always a stand up person constantly and consistently. We would laugh all day long together at work to the point where we actually almost peed our pants. Once we made an escape route and detailed plan on how to escape the mall if it were attacked while we were working. Lol. He gave me the nickname Hizzle. He carved that name on to a liter and gave it to me at work one day. He was always full of jokes and his brain was far beyond smart! He knew so much back then and always gave me advice in life. And still on social media we would chat and give each other advice on certain life situations. Love you Chung. You will be dearly missed. ❤️❤️ Rest easy until we see each other again ❤️

    I don’t know where to start to say how much I love and miss this guy. He was my washbelly (last born) and there is a gaping hole left in my heart, however, one thing I know for sure is that my God is real and He will never give me more than I can bear. He’s the Lion of the tribe of Judah and I give myself to Him so that He can fix the broken pieces. Until then , my heart will go on singing, until then I will try my very best to carry on with joy. RIP my son.
