June 15, 1956 - January 5, 2020

Huang, Jen-Yi

Jen-Yi Huang passed peacefully on Sunday, January 5th, 2020 at the age of 63. Known to loved ones as Jen, he was born in Taipei, Taiwan on the 15th of June, 1956 to Mei-Yu Lai and Chi-Shing Huang. He spent most of his formative years in Taipei, growing up fishing, swimming, and riding his motorcycle around the area. He attended National Taiwan University, where he met his wife Cathy, earned his medical degree and played competitive tennis.

After university, Jen and Cathy relocated to the US, spending time in California and Kansas before settling in the Humble, TX area where he established himself as a prominent radiologist and raised their two children, Aaron and Teresa.

Jen was an avid tennis player, car enthusiast, and a lover of all gadgets. He loved nature and was blessed with a green thumb and the ability to nurture any garden. His unique ability for care also extended to his loved ones. He was known to friends, family, and colleagues as a constant guiding figure. His compassion, expansive knowledge, and ability to navigate any situation with grace and appropriate levity made him a trusted leader, mentor, and confidant to all in his life. Jen was a spirited man and could be seen immediately befriending and cracking jokes with those he came across.

He is survived and will be fondly celebrated by his wife, Cathy Chang and his children, Aaron Huang and Teresa Day (née Huang). He is also survived by his brothers, Jason, Rick, and Blake Huang.

In honor of Jen’s love of nature, the family is kindly asking that in lieu of flowers, consider planting a tree through a memorial donation to an organization such as https://www.americanforests.org/ways-to-give/memorial-gift-trees/ or https://onetreeplanted.org/collections/united-states/products/national-forests. Or even simply by planting in your own backyard.


Service Information

A Celebration of Life will be held on Thursday, January 16, from 1-3pm at Darst Funeral Home, 796 Russell Palmer Rd, Kingwood, TX 77339.

I played many matches with Jen and our other partners (Don Glass, Jay Scott, Mike Grabowski, Rhett Flores and TommySwowya). We often played at his home court. A good time by all. Many memories were left on that court, his great back hand for one. I will miss seeing his smile when he made a great shot as he would often say "back to normal." He also gave me some very HOT jalapenos from his home grown garden that I enjoyed very much. My thoughts and prayers go to his family.

I will always cherish the good times I got to spend with Jen on the tennis court. We had some epic doubles matches. I always wanted Jen on my team because I knew he would keep the guys on the other side of the net honest. Lol, if our opponents were making bad line calls Jen would let them know. After that they would think twice before calling a close ball out. All kidding aside, I will miss Jen’s energy and love of life. My heart goes out to his family. I hope they will find comfort in knowing how fulfilled his life was.

阿義,

還記得一年多前,我們一起去台中看花博。你一路一直幫媽媽推輪椅看花展,我們也就順著跟進,省了很多排隊的時間。那次出遊大家都玩得很開心。原想去年底可以在台灣再次與你們相聚,萬萬沒想到悪耗傳來,我們再也見不到你了。

你的多才多藝,廣泛的興趣,及相處的點滴,將永遠留在我們的記憶裡。願你在天堂平安喜樂。

成城,郁萍

1976年秋天 剛進台大的時候 在總區網球場 注意到一位很高 很帥 又蠻會打網球的男生 竟然是台大醫科(天之驕子)二年級的學生後來經過學長介紹 才知道你是 '阿義' 之後在醫學院球場與你打過幾次球

後來大學生活 也沒有跟你特別交往 但是我們見到面 都會互相打招呼你是那麼開朗活潑有精神 甚至在當實習醫師值大夜班時也都面帶笑容

1988年秋天 我到加州柏克萊大學念博士 經過張正育醫師牽線 又再次在 Hillsborough遇到你 你的樣子都沒有變 一樣的帥氣 陽光

再過來30年期間 你我都在美國異鄉打拼 前一兩年有幸再聽到你住在德州的消息 也打算抽空與張正育醫師一起來拜訪你 但在前幾天 竟然接到這消息 ...

(約翰福音 14:6) 耶穌說:「我就是道路、真理、生命;若不藉著我,沒有人能到父那裡去。

44年多前第一次見到你 就覺得你是聰明 受祝福的
主耶穌疼我們應許我們永生你平靜地離開我們的前幾天接受了主耶穌 作為你個人的救主 這就是Blessed Assurance 我們感到非常溫馨 因你已在主耶穌的懷抱裡 享受永遠的生命

願主耶穌基督的慈愛與信實 親自安慰祝福帶領你的家人

當年一起翹課打球,是大學生活中最令人懷念的一段時光。去年趁你回國之便,咱倆促膝長談了一個下午,今日竟成追憶。傷心啊!阿義兄弟一路好走。
