Jackie Chan’s father dies

By Thumper - 4 March 2008 6

According to the Herald Sun, martial arts movie star Jackie Chan will bring the body of his recently deceased father, Charlie, to Canberra to be buried next to his late wife.

Charlie Chan died in a Hong Kong hospital last week, aged 93, reportedly suffering from prostate cancer.

A private memorial service will be held on Saturday.

A sad moment for Mr Chan one would think.

What’s Your opinion?

Sorry. That turn out like a dog’s breakfast. If someone could fix it, that would be great.

The funeral was held today. Acording to the and the attendees included US Ambassador Robert McCallum, Kate Carnell and Gary Humphries.

Jackie Chan said he was thankful for everything that Australia and Canberra had done for his family. Mr Chan Sr was buried next to his wife at Gungahlin Cemetery.

I believe he owns a lot of the Dickson business zone (Wooley Street etc) but that is a drop compared to his $100 million stake in Hong Kong architecture.

(Incidentally, I met Mr Chan sr once a few years ago when I was present when he gave a local young ill Jackie Chan fan a signed photo of his son. Nice bloke. )

forgive me if I’m wrong.. but don’t the chans own a chinese restaurant in .. wetangra or around the area?

I met Mr Chan a few times through the local Chinese community. He was a top guy and he had so many interesting stories. He will be missed. I think Jackie still has many property investments here in Canberra so he’ll still be around town.

Sorry to hear that. Did he move back to Hong Kong when his wife died?

One less famous son we can claim as partly Canberran now I guess…
