The funeral of veteran Hong Kong actor Kenneth Tsang was held on Tuesday (May 17) in a low-key manner after he was found dead in a quarantine hotel in Hong Kong on April 27. He was 87.
According to the Hong Kong media, the actor’s funeral was attended by his wife, actress Lisa Chiao Chiao; his daughter Musette Tsang from his second marriage with columnist Barbara Tang; Tang and her husband Franco Yuen.
Also in attendance were Tsang’s good friends such as veteran actor Bowie Wu and actress Helen Ma.
Musette Tsang told the media previously that her half-brother, Kenneth Tsang’s son from his first marriage to late actress Landi Chang, was based in Canada and would not be returning to Hong Kong to attend the funeral partly due to the territory’s quarantine measures.
The memorial ended at about 3pm on Tuesday, with Tsang’s casket moved to a crematorium for cremation afterwards. Musette Tsang said the family have not decided where to place his ashes.
