Rui Chen, age 60, passed away on August 9 at The OSU Wexner Medical Center, after a year of battling cancer.

 

Rui was born on April 18, 1963, in Taishan, Guangdong, China. He was the son of Jieliang Chen and Jindie Chen. Rui was a man of many talents. He worked as a carpenter and movie operator before immigrating to the United States. He and his family settled in Columbus, Ohio where he worked as a chef for nearly twenty years. An artist at heart, he enjoyed singing karaoke in his free time. He was also known for his skillful Chinese calligraphy and Chinese paintings. Rui‘s other passion was surrounding himself with nature. He especially enjoyed collecting rocks and taking pictures of plants. His love of art and nature was only surpassed by his love for his family.

 

He is survived by his wife of 39 years, Feng Zeng, and his children: Danni Chen and Andrew Rosen, of Los Angeles, CA; Laura and Brandon Sauls, of Houston, TX; and Haochi Chen and Victoria Myszko, of New York City, NY.

Also surviving is his mother Jindie Chen of Taishan, China and sister Yingna Chen of Minneapolis, Minnesota. 

 

The family plans to return Rui to his hometown, Taishan, in Guangdong, China, where he will find his final resting place.
