He experienced poverty, discrimination, and unfair treatments brought by The Cultural Revolution. He survived lung cancer six years. During his time with cancer, he always lived an independent life.

His smiles impressed many people. His friends, relatives,electrician students, English classmates and teachers, they all like to get together with him, talk with him and had a great time.
