Liang, Eugene KuoYu

Eugene KuoYu Liang, 81, passed away peacefully May 31, 2024 at Parkview Nursing and Rehab Center with his sister, Helen, at his side. Eugene was born in Chongqing, China, 1942. He was the son of Dr. Ching Chun Liang and Shiu Hsien Hsiao. He immigrated to the US in 1947 with his family, when his father was appointed to be a United Nations special envoy with International Monetary Fund. While growing up in Washington DC, Eugene attended several secondary schools and received special education at the Devereux Foundation.

In spite of dealing with life-long mental health issues, Eugene was an inspiring, loving, engaging, church attendee, and gifted individual. He could easily recall names of the people he had met years ago. If you were unable to understand his spoken words, he could spell out the words for you. He could remember countless songs, especial gospel music, including the lyrics. He asked for very little, except an occasional baseball card or coin - US or foreign. He would affectionately hold a coin for hours and study it carefully. Eugene was loved unconditionally by his family as well as his caring staff and friends he encountered at the various institutions he lived in for over 60 years.

Eugene was preceded in death by his parents and siblings, George, June, Calvin and Kate. He is survived by his brother, Dr. Horace Liang and sister Helen Tang-Yates and many cousins, nieces and nephews.

The family is extremely grateful for the utmost loving care from the staff of Parkview Nursing and Rehab Center and Delaware Hospice.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the National Alliance on Mental Illness. NAMI is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. P O Box 49104, Baltimore, MD 21297, or
