王春豫 Wang Chunyu, My 7th Uncle

王春豫 Wang Chunyu (1876 – 1937)

 

王春豫 Wang Chunyu is the 7th uncle of 王叔金 Ong Seok Kim, the youngest brother of 王春耻 Wang Chunchi.  王春豫 Wang Chunyu was a scholar in the Ching Dynasty.  He came to Sitiawan for a visit in 1936.  On his way back to China the next year, his journey was interrupted because of the 1937 Sino-Japanese War. 

 

He was stuck in Segamat, Johor State as Xiamen was occupied by the Japanese.  He settled in Segamat and became a teacher there. He passed away shortly thereafter from pneumonia at the age of 61.  王叔金 Ong Seok Kim went to visit him but 春豫 Chunyu passed away before his arrival. 王叔金 Ong Seok Kim arranged his funeral and paid the expenses.
