If you’re a fan of good ol’ Hong Kong comedies, particularly in the ’80s and ’90s, this might sadden you.

Veteran and legendary Hong Kong actor, Richard Ng Yiu Hon passed away yesterday (April 9) after being bedridden in the hospital for days.

According to Oriental Daily, Richard’s family received a call from the doctor who told them that Richard may not have long before his body gave up on him. 

Richard had to rely on ventilators to breathe as his lung slowly deteriorated and malfunctioned. Despite the efforts to save him, Richard breathed his last and his family confirmed the news yesterday. He was 83 years old.

According to another report by Zao Bao, Richard told the media that his kidney could only function at 10%, and this was 2 years ago. However, the doctor did not recommend a kidney transplant for him. So, he had to undergo kidney dialysis every day. Prior to his death, Richard lived with his wife and daughters.

2 years is not a long time but a lot could happen, and unfortunately, Richard’s health deteriorated in a short period of time. Before his hearing became worse, he had to undergo surgery and had kidney failure.

With over 50 years of experience in the entertainment industry, Richard has certainly graced the screen with many of his comedic roles, particularly in Five Lucky Stars.
