OBITUARY:
Sai Pak Chan passed away peacefully at his home in Atlanta, Georgia on June 16, 2018, at the age of 96. In 1942 he graduated from Lingnan University in Guangzhou, China, and in 1948, following a national competition and being awarded National Scholar in Structural Engineering, he pursued post-graduate studies at the University of Paris and worked for the French architect, Le Corbusier. In 1953, Sai received his Ph. D from the University of Illinois in Structural Engineering under Nathan Newmark. He spent his career in the civil and aerospace industries, conducting research associated with aircraft and launch vehicle design, and in the nuclear industry after joining the Atomic Energy Commission (later the Nuclear Regulatory Commission) in 1973 as a structural engineer specializing in seismic engineering. He was also a scholar in Chinese literature, classical music and art. Following his retirement from the NRC in 1992, Sai traveled extensively and visited every major art museum in the world. He is survived by his three children and five grandchildren. A private graveside service will be held at Arlington Memorial Park in Sandy Springs, Georgia on June 20, 2018. In lieu of flowers, donations in Dr. Chanís memory can be made to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.

I like to express my deepest sympathy for your loss. It was never Godís intent that death should rule over mankind. - Romans 5:12; 1Corinthians 15:26, 55; He will do away with it and He has provided hope-as stated at John 5:28, 29. During this most painful time please find comfort from the scriptures.

I have known Dr. Sai Chan since 1975. Sai is an extremely intelligent scholar and engineer. The so-called "beta" method, first developed by him and widely used by numerous engineers in the field of numerical analysis, was part of his PhD thesis. During his tenure in the NRC, he contributed significantly to the NRC's requirements for seismic design of nuclear power plants in the NRC's Standard Review Plan. I will forever remember him as a colleague and a friend.

I met Sai when I joined the Structural Branch of NRC in 1978. I will always remember him fondly, along with our co-worker and his friend, C. P. Tan. They were not only excellent engineers but very gracious and gentle people.

ďThose we love donít go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near, so missed, so very dear ď I didnít know Mr. Chan for very long, but the time I spent as a caregiver to him was amazing, I never thought I would care for him for the last time on Saturday but I do know that I kept him in the best spirit I could I will always remember him ďHe was my sunshineĒ ~Shay
