Jimmy 的朋友您好,







Queenie, Andrew and Edwin.

Dear Students, Alumni, Colleagues and Friends,

It is with our deepest sorrow that we inform you of the passing away of our beloved colleague and dear member of ITC, Dr LAM Kwok Cheong Jimmy on 31st May 2019.

Dr Jimmy Lam joined ITC in 1994 and served as the programme leader of Higher Diploma Scheme in Fashion and Textile Studies for many years, till this year that the programme is phased out. Over the years, Jimmy devoted himself to teaching and he had maintained strong bonds with all his students and friends in ITC family. Words may fail us, but Jimmy’s friendship, passion for teaching, care and concern for his students, colleagues, and friends, and selfless devotion to the common good of ITC community, will be in our hearts always.

A Wake/Visitation service will be held between 5:30pm to 8:30pm on 20th June 2019 at Wing Yan Hall, Universal Funeral, Honghom. Funeral services and cremation ceremony will be held the next morning at 10am on 21st June 2019.  Memorial or floral contribution may be sent.

You are welcome to join us to pay our respects to Dr Jimmy Lam at the date and time listed above, share the brief of the deceased family and offer them with our comfort and support.  We have also set up a memorial counter at ITC General Office (Room QT715) and prepared some memorial notes with envelopes for members of the ITC community to collect.  Members are welcome to share their thoughts and memories about Jimmy through these memorial notes. Your notes, together with your memorial contribution if any, will be given to Jimmy’s family later, if you are not able to attend the funeral service in person.

Jimmy will always be fondly remembered by all of us as a great teacher and a wonderful friend.  Please join me in offering his family our deepest condolences.  May Jimmy rest in peace.


Yours sincerely
