Hwa Shen entered into Eternal Life, Wednesday, March 24, 2021, at the age of 72. Born on August 6, 1948, in Shanghai China, he was the son of the late Ping and Yar (Chen) Shen. He came to Wisconsin in 1996 and after retirement split his time between Milwaukee, WI and Austin, TX. Surviving are his wife, Kuei; his daughter, Christine (Dean) Karpowicz of Franklin, Wisconsin; his grandson, Shen Karpowicz; brother, Chyau (Yan Li) Shen, of Drayden, Maryland. He will be sadly missed by his family and friends.

He was formerly employed by Johnson Controls until his retirement. During his years of employment he was granted two different patents and many awards. A lifelong learner, Hwa earned many formal degrees, most recently a Master of Theological Studies from Baylor University. He devoted much of his life to serving others through the work of the church and helping students from abroad.

Visitation on Tuesday, April 6, 2021 from 10:00 - 11:30 AM, at Chinese Christian Church, 2519 East Kenwood Boulevard, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Masks required for visitation. Private family burial to follow. Please leave a special memory or story for the family to pass on to Hwa’s grandson on the memory wall.

Kuei and Christine we feel so sorry to hear of Hwa's passing to his heavenly home. We have fond memories of Hwa as a spiritual leader at Faith, he was such a gentle quiet spirit. We pray for you as you grieve, but with hope of seeing him in heaven some day. This "see you later" time is so hard. Love and prayer, Gordon and Darlene Truax

Brother in Christ Hwa was a great influence in the church Wednesday Prayer Meeting and you can sense Hwa care for the ministry of Chinese Christian Church of Milwaukee by encouraging the group session to seek God advice instead of self. Will miss you and will see other soon
