Unen Du Hsu

Posted By Jackie Andrews On June 21, 2019 @ 11:22 am In Obituaries | 4 Comments

Unen/Wen Du/Wayne/Doctor Hsu, 80, died Tuesday, June 11, 2019. He was born on March 31, 1939 in Hengchun, Taiwan.

While he was a man that was known by many names, all who knew him knew only of his kind heart and gentle demeanor. After attending and graduating with a medical degree from National Taiwan University, Unen immigrated to the United States. After a brief stint in Troy, NY, he moved to Detroit, MI where he would meet Anastasia “Stacy” Manteris while doing his hospital residency. The two would eventually marry and move to New Orleans for a couple years. This move influenced their lives in many ways even after their move to Phoenix in 1972, one being that they insisted on making grits for their daughters every.single.Saturday. Dr Hsu spent his professional years as a physician in Phoenix working at many of the Valley’s hospitals and using his knowledge of endocrinology and diabetes to help the lives of many. More reserved than most, he enjoyed playing Freecell, watching and trying to crack the stock market, swimming, reading obscure literature and poetry, and eating all sorts of food in all sorts of quantities that belied his small frame. Dr. Hsu was also a man of faith, converting to Greek Orthodoxy when he married Stacy and continued to periodically attend the church he came to know as an American. Dr. Hsu was truly a man that appreciated life in and of itself.

He was preceded in death by his wife Stacy; his parents; and an infant brother. He is survived by his daughters Nicole and Danielle; son-in-law George; grandchildren James (10), Kira (10), and Anastasia (6). He is also survived by his younger brothers Ven, TK, Vincent and Bob; and sister Inga. He will be remembered by all as a lover not a fighter, and his grandkids will fondly recall his ‘Yei-yei shuffle’ and his silly jokes: What do you call a horse with one leg? A quarter horse, amongst others.

Services will be at 10:00AM Saturday, June 29, 2019 at Hansen Mortuary, 8314 N. 7th St., Phoenix 85020. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your preferred charity as Dr. Hsu was a believer in giving until you have nothing left. Visit https://www.hansenmortuary.com for condolences.

Condolences for the family of “Unen Du Hsu”

Condolence from Bryan Goldwater on June 24th, 2019 12:53 pm

Danielle & Nicole:
So sorry to hear the news about your dad. I am not sure if you remember me, but my brother Nathan and I knew you when we were all little kids. Your dad was an insurance client of my dad’s, we all lived near each other, or some combination of all that. I ran into your mom years ago when she shopped at my cash register at Dillard’s. I am shocked to read that you lost her, as well. Many years, many miles, lots of water under the bridge, but I remember those childhood visits fondly. Best wishes to you and your families in this time of grief.

My most loving condolences to the family of the person, doctor so many titles he held, it comes with great sorrow to no longer be able to see him I find this news as I am trying to get to the office for a appointment, when placing the call to his office, recording would state phone number not in service.
So I proceeded to search the internet, to find out, that he has gone to with his loved ones.
My entire family is greatly appreciated the kindness of Dr Hsu. I for one am grateful because he gave me another opportunity in life. 30yrs ago I was very ill unable to pay for my medine and medical appointments. When they told me take her home nothing they can do for me, he never gave up.
That’s why my daughter said you need to go back to see him, once again I was told last April 2018 that I would not live see December 2018 so my children were told something I kept to myself.
Dr. Hsu was our families doctor; within his time he cared for the Five ( 5 ) generations.
It sadens me to not be able to attend services in his honor.
I would like to thank the family for letting him be part of the community and people that he loved. It was a great honor to have had him in my life,
My thoughts and prayers will be with you.
You will be missed my friend. I feel lost because he was a person who would speak the truth and I admired him for that.
His famous words to one and all,
Loose weight.

Unen Du (Revelation 7:17 ):
For the Lamb at the center of the throne
will be their shepherd;
‘he will lead them to springs of living water.’
‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’

May our lord bless Unen Du’s Family
