Hui Wang Funeral Scheduled for Tomorrow

Harvard community members urged to attend

Hui Wang’s funeral is scheduled for 11 a.m. tomorrow (Tuesday) at the Wing Kook Funeral Home in Boston, the director of Harvard University Health Services announced this afternoon. Wang, a junior biochemical sciences concentrator in Eliot House, was killed in a car crash Oct. 7 in the Catskill Mountains of New York.

University Health Services chief David S. Rosenthal ’59 said he was asked by Wang’s family to publicize the funeral to the Harvard community. Harvard paid for Wang’s parents, who live in Guangzhou, China, to travel to the United States for the funeral.

The Wing Kook home is located at 13 Gerard Street, in the South End area of Boston. The funeral will continue until approximately 1 p.m., according to Rosenthal.

The mental health services division of UHS and the Bureau of Study Counsel have been organizing grief counseling for friends of Wang, Rosenthal said.
