Jianquan had a lifelong interest and passion in music, most especial classical with favored composers such as Mozart, Beethoven, Dvorak, Tchaikovsky, Brahms and Chopin. Throughout his life he remained curious and interested in learning, and evolving with the world surround him. As a life-long learner he became so erudite and tech-savvy that his family and close friends dotingly referred to him as 'The Encyclopedia'. Despite his significant achievements in career and personal life, Jianquan maintained his humbleness with a kindest heart. He was always ready to extend love, care, and help to others in need wholeheartedly. Jianquan was also known to his friends as the unifier and was instrumental in bringing people together. Jianquan kept active physically and would swim even until age 90 up to 1000 meters twice a week. Other interests included science, technology, photography, reading, and fixing things around the home. He will be very much missed by his family and remembered amongst many things as kind, patient, humble, and above all, the unconditional love and devotion to his wife and children.
