Obituary

"What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.” - Helen Keller.


Ricky Kyin-Kok Ma peacefully passed away on March 7, 2021, in Overlook Hospital in Summit, New Jersey at 70 years old.


His parents were from 廣東省,台山市,西栅堡,西華里村,斗山 (Taishan, Guangdong, Jiangmen, Guangdong Province, China)


He was born in Yangon (also known as Rangoon City), Burma. As the youngest of seven children, he was cherished by his parents and all of his siblings.

He was one of the hardest working people that we ever knew. Knowing little to no English, he came to the United States at a young age. He would work very long hours in a restaurant. As an adult, he worked three jobs to support his family. He had spent more than 36 years working for Amtrak.


Even though he worked from early morning to late night, he always found the time to help others. He had sponsored so many people, who he barely knew, to start their new lives in the United States. His love and care for his family showed no bounds. He treated his nieces and nephews as if they were his own children.


He was never afraid to tell his honest opinions. He felt that the family should stay close, and only wanted to protect us. When the time came where his children needed to leave the nest, he never shied away, and instead showed his support, at any given moment. All he ever wanted was for his beloved children to fulfill their dreams.


Since we were very young, he would always tell us, regardless how far apart we were geographically, if we ever needed his help, all we had to do was reach out our hand, and we would feel his presence. We always thought it was silly, but now we realize it was his way of showing us he would always be there to be our pillar of strength, and maybe he was preparing us for this day.


He was a loving husband, father, brother, uncle, cousin and friend.


May YOU forever be at peace.


We love YOU.


We miss YOU.


Forever you will be in our hearts,


Linda Ma

他是我們認識的最努力的人之一。他很小的時候到美國。他幾乎不懂英語。 他曾在一家餐廳工作很長時間。成年後,他做三份工作來養家糊口。他在Amtrak工作超過36年。

即使他從清晨到深夜都在工作,但他總是有時間幫助別人。他贊助了許多他幾乎不認識的人開始在美國的新生活。他對家人的愛與關懷無止境。他把侄女和侄子當成自己的孩子對待。

他從不害怕說出自己的誠實意見。他認為一家人應該保持親密關係,只想保護我們。當他的孩子需要離開巢穴的時候到了,他從不迴避,而是在任何的時刻都表示支持。他所想要的只是為了讓自己心愛的孩子們實現他們的夢想。

在我們還很小的時候,他總是會告訴我們,無論我們在多遠的地方,如果我們需要他的幫助,我們要做的就是伸出我們的手,我們會感覺到他的存在。我們一直認為這很愚蠢,但是現在我們意識到這是他向我們展示的方式他將永遠成為我們力量的支柱,也許他正在為這一天做準備。

To Ricky the King of Ma's family,
You will definitely be missed, from now on, on your birthday, you can't hear my singing HB anymore, but that doesn't mean you are not with us, always in our heart and mind,
Rest in peace Ricky, protect, take care and watch over your family from above,
You did a great job in raising the children to become successful people in the society, such a blessing, and thanks to Linda always taking care of King Ricky beyond our imagination,
Still remember lots of good old time that you can spare and come visit or join us for parties or celebration or Seattle trips, priceless, valuable and cherish all memories,
Though you are not here anymore, but your spirit, your love, your care will always outshine and protect all those you love,
"Those we love don't go away
They walk beside us everyday
Unseen, unheard but always near
Still loved, still missed and always dear"

Uncle Ricky is probably one of the closet uncle I had while growing up. When I was young I would love to go over to his house to play with Kathy, Davis and Jackie because they have so many new toys. They are very fortunate to have such great and loving parents. I remember he will always bring us out to cool places. Aunt Linda was the one who gave me and my sisters our English names. I am forever grateful to have such wonderful memories while growing up.

Uncle Ricky was a hard working man. He always put his family first. He is very loving and caring. I wished we had more time to spend with him. I am very blessed to have such a great uncle. You will be missed so much. Rest in peace.

There are no proper words and expressions to express the sorrow that I have in my heart to lose my dearest uncle Ricky. There is no replacement for such a hardworking and dedicated person like him. At this time, all that I can do is pray for his soul to be at peace and protected in God’s grace. May you rest in peace dear uncle. We will miss you deeply.

Uncle Ricky was extremely hard working and generous with his time and energy. When he was working, he would find the time to run a business selling audio and video components and equipment, and often gave family members free gear. After he retired, Ricky built, from scratch, a thriving garden in the backyard of his New Jersey home growing, among other crops, HUGE winter melons that he would give the family and friends when they grew to full size in the late Fall. Losing Ricky after an extended illness has been extremely tough on all of us; however, we are comfortable praying and knowing he is no longer suffering and is in God's graces.

With our blessings,
Spencer Chin, Jenny Wu, and Diana Ma-Wu
