R.I.P., Mr. Morales.

The venerable Mr. A. C. Morales, under whose supervision most of us grew up while at the College, passed away (official press release) at Ruttonjee Hospital on September 1, 2011, at about 5:50pm. Former disciplinarian Mr. C. C. Mak was among those who went to say goodbye, and reported that the late principal had left this world peacefully.

September 5 update:

Visitation for Mr. Morales will be held at Hong Kong Funeral Home (1/F) in the evening of September 15, with mass starting at 8:00pm. The funeral service will proceed the next day, followed by cremation at Cape Collinson Crematorium at 2:00pm. We are going to be sending flowers on behalf of the alumni in Ontario.

If you have any thoughts or memories of Mr. Morales you would like to share, please leave a comment at the official To Sir With Love memorial blog.
