  • HUI (Weng Choon):

    Deepest condolences on the passing of Uncle.

    I forever remember the kindness that he had shown to me and my boys when we had the privilege to stay with him and Aunty in Perth many years ago. He was always caring and gentle, with a twinkle in his eyes and a cheerful laugh.

    He will be missed.

    Dear Aunty, John and Pam, may you all find peace and comfort during this difficult time.

    Please take care.

    We will surely miss you Choon Sook. I remember the early days at Hui Clinic where we spent some nights playing draughts to pass the hours.

    You have been a great and loving uncle, always having time chatting with us.

    You told me once you have climbed the Great Chinese Wall twice, and that you can claim to be twice a man. Indeed you are twice a man !

    Our deepest condolences to Sam Sum, John and Elaine

    Love, Weng Onn, Chooi Hea, Yi-Wen and Reuben

    Dear John, Pam and Shulynne

    Our deepest condolences to you and your family.

    I have known both uncle Hui and aunt when I was studying in Perth 25 years ago. Both of them are great people, full of passion and always ready to give.

    Although uncle Hui is no longer around, those memories will always stay with us.

    Eccelesiastes 3:1-4

    “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill and a time to heal; a time to break down and a time to build up; a time to weep and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and a time to dance“

    When people have a vision and set out to create something amazing, they have an innocence about them in what lives they will touch and how.

    Although not knowing him well personally, Hui Weng Choon and his co-founders of COBRA have enlightened my life through the places I have visited and more importantly the life long friends I have made…..all from a vision sitting on a bar stool.

    Terima Kasih

  • HUI (Weng Choon):

    Dr Hui was the Founding President of the Combined Old Boys Rugby Association(COBRA). Apart from being a rugby player par excellence he also contributed immensely to rugby administration in Malaysia.

    In spite of being in Perth he continued to show a keen interest in the affairs of the Club.

    It was an honour for COBRA to have Dr Hui, Mrs Hui and family join us for the club's 50th Anniversary Celebrations in 2017.

    The club will be eternally grateful to him and his fellow founders for their vision which has enabled the club to do so much for rugby over the last 6 decades. They will also be remembered for introducing 10-a-side rugby. In 1967 COBRA hosted the first ever Rugby 10s; still known as the "COBRA 10s".

    His legacy will live on with the Dr Hui Weng Choon challenge trophy he donated for the tournament.

    The Club extends our deepest condolences to Mrs Hui and family on the loss of a great rugby lover, doctor and gentleman.

    May his soul rest in peace.

    My Dearest Yee Cheong,

    Yee Cheong (Uncle) was my only uncle when I first came to Australia over forty years ago and I have known him for most of my life. His life has spanned almost a century and it was a life rich with experiences, achievements, activities influences as well as love, happiness and satisfaction. He was an excellent husband, father, an uncle to me, later a father in-law and doting grandfather. He always put his family first and was very protective as well as proud of them. My uncle was astute, caring, generous, benevolent but at the same time, understated, modest and never self indulgent. He was also witty and would sprout jokes at crucial times to the surprise of his company. Yee Cheong was much loved and adored by his family and friends; admired and respected by his peers as well as his patients and also touched many lives with his selfless nature. I as well as many will definitely miss his unique qualities and will cherish the memories of him.

    I would like to extend my deepest condolences to my Yee Yee (Aunty) Sum Lan, Elaine, John, Paul, Pamela, Chiara, Shannon and Shulynne. I hope you will feel solace and comfort in the knowledge that Weng Choon Hui is at peace and now with God. We shall meet again.

    The Dearest of Family Friends.

    This friendship and legacy starts in 1951 when two young men ventured from Malaysia and dared to complete a medical degree in the then exotic and unknown country of Australia (Adelaide, SA).

    There was a determination to pursue and succeed in their chosen endeavours that was seeded from 4 years of Japanese occupied Malaysia during their formative years. A determination that allowed them to see and take opportunity when it presented itself.

    This bond, borne from rooming together for 6 years in St Marks college, was so strong that it branched and captured many other life long friendships along the way; all that continue today.

    Selva (Selvaratnam) and Fred (Easton) with Choon were an inseparable threesome in those earlier years. These three were later to be bonded with John (Retallick) and many more as this unique circle of friends flourished practicing their genuine love of Medicine.

    Uncle Choon, your calming nature and natural generosity lives on thru Aunty Lan, Elaine, John and family. Your legacy from the start of your adventure, all those many years ago, continues through all those that you have touched along the way.

    You are now at peace. The threesome are together again, united in our Lord's great Kingdom, no doubt playing their best loved songs from the famous Music Attic Club.

    Peace be with you...

    I first met Dr. Hui in 1994 on a flight from Hong Kong to San Fran when he was travelling with his lovely wife; and my best buddy, John. Over the years, I got to know him as a proud father, loving father-in-law and doting grandfather. He was a distinguished gentleman with no airs but full of humility and kindness. An awesome speaker with sharp wit and wicked sense of humour. My fondest memories were of him hosting my family on our visits to Perth. He will be sorely missed by me and mine family. Our deepest condolences to Mrs Hui, Elaine and family, John, Pam, Shulynne.

    Choon ‘Kau Fu’

    My doctor and uncle who looked after and treated me when I was a baby through to my teenage years. Until you and your family moved to Perth and I to Sydney.

    You have been a doctor of the universe and your empathy, compassion, nurturing and caring nature shown through like a bright beaming light!

    Even when you were back in hospital for treatment (which I found out later from Elaine) that you had ulcers in your mouth and had trouble talking but you still took the trouble to return my call and did not indicate how serious your condition was. You sounded very calm during our short tele conversation on the phone and I will treasure that last chat with you forever.

    I will miss our regular tele conversation over the many years. And especially on our favourite Team - Wallabies. It is time for you to finally and deservedly get to rest and have some peace for yourself as you have continuously work to treat and look after numerous patients during your journey on earth.

    My regret is not being able to make the planned trip to Perth with my family to visit you earlier this year due to the border closure.

    But we know that your great legacy will live on through Sum Lan ‘Kam Mo’, Elaine, John and your grandchildren. And that they will continue the fantastic job you have done for mankind.

    You had also worked until your retirement at an age where many will be moaning and groaning with aches and pains and other numerous ailments. But you made the decision and continued to heal and to treat many unselfishly. With this my uncle, friend and doctor. Farewell and RIP

    Dr Hui was my doctor since my early childhood. I remember he was the only doctor I would see without fear as a boy, and the only one who was able to give me injections without resistance from me. Till today I still remember my patient file number at his clinic. Later in life he became a friend too. As an adult I have grown to respect him for his kindness, wisdom, gentleness and fatherly figure. He will be greatly missed now.
