Carmichael

Dr. Renqun Zhang passed away at the age of 86 on the morning of March 30, 2024 at the Mercy General Hospital in Sacramento, California, 8 days after a fall on his daily afternoon walk.

 Dr. Zhang was born on February 2, 1938 in Nankang, Jiangxi, China. He visited Sacramento, California almost every other year after retirement and moved to live in Sacramento in 2015 to be close to his children and grandchildren. Although growing up in a remote village without electricity, he made a substantial impact over his 40 year career in clinical dermatology and administrating regional infectious disease control organizations. His honors included a national award for his dedication to eradicating leprosy in Jiangxi province. Moreover, he worked closely with the WHO of the United Nations as a leprosy treatment expert in India. He was very athletic as a young man, swimming and playing basketball for many years. Dr. Zhang never stopped learning over the course of his life. At the age of 70, he began learning to proficiently use computer to keep up with world affairs and to write in Chinese input, no small challenge for his age. He wrote an autobiographical memoir, a brief History of Leprosy in Jiangxi Province, and a journal for taking care of his grandsons during his visits to California.

 Dr. Zhang was an extremely caring and supportive husband, a loving father and grandfather. His sudden passing is mourned by his wife Nanying Liu, his daughter Qiaohong Zhang, his son Zhigang Zhang, his grandsons, Yunfan Zhang, Brian Shan, Alex Shan, his granddaughter Danwei Zhang, his brother Renzhen Zhang, his niece Xiuying Zhang, his grand nephew Shengtian Zhang, his daughter-in-law Yuxi Zhang, his son-in-law Kaiyu Shan, and hundreds of people he touched in his life.

 A funeral service will be held Sunday April 7, 2024, at 10:00AM at the East Lawn Memorial Park, 4300 Folsom Blvd., Sacramento, CA 95819. Tel. (916)732-2000. 

 In lieu of flowers, Dr. Zhang’s daughter Qiaohong (Hong) and son Zhigang (Simon) ask that donations be made to Mercy Foundation in Dr. Renqun Zhang’s name to help care and support of patients and their families (MercyFoundation.org). We are grateful for the compassion and dedication of the hospital staff during the last days of his life.

讣告:张仁群医生

张仁群医生于2024年3月30日上午在加州萨克拉门托的Mercy 综合医院去世,享年86岁。

张医生1938年2月2日出生于中国江西省南康市,他在退休后几乎每隔一年就会访问加州萨克拉门托,并于2015年搬到萨克拉门托与子女和孙子女们生活在一起。尽管在没有电的偏远村庄长大,但他在职业生涯中取得了许多成就:在皮肤病学临床工作和区域传染病控制管理方面工作超过40年,走遍江西每一个县市。因为在江西省消灭麻风病做出的杰出贡献,他获得了中国卫生部颁布的马海德奖。作为麻风病治疗专家,他帮助联合国世界卫生组织亲临印度对当地人员和项目进行指导。他终身学习,从不止步。年轻时他非常喜欢运动,常打篮球和游泳。70岁时,他开始学习使用计算机,并能够熟练输入中文,这对老年人来说是一项不小的挑战。他撰写了自传式回忆录、江西省麻风病简史以及一篇关于在加州照顾两个外孙的日记。

作为一个极其关爱和支持的丈夫、慈爱的父亲和祖父,他的突然离世使他的妻子刘楠英、女儿张巧红、儿子张志刚、孙子张云帆、孙女张丹葳,外孙单凌霄,单儒雅,弟张仁珍,侄女张秀英,儿媳张虞兮,女婿单开宇都深感哀痛。

葬礼将于2024年4月7日星期日上午10:00在加州萨克拉门托的East Lawn Memorial Park 举行。电话 (916)732-2000。

张医生的女儿巧红(Hong)和儿子志刚(Simon)请求大家不要送花圈,请考虑以张仁群医生的名义捐赠给Mercy基金会(MercyFoundation.org),以帮助照顾和支持患者及其家人。我们对医院工作人员在他生命的最后几天所付出的同情和奉献表示感激。

葬礼探视时间:2024年4月7日星期日上午10:00至11:30在East Lawn Memorial Park,地址:4300 Folsom Blvd.,萨克拉门托,加州95819。
