City Mourns Loss of Mayor Chi Mui

SAN GABRIEL, CA – April 28, 2006 – It is with deep sadness and regret to announce the death of Mayor Chi Mui after a courageous battle with cancer. Admitted to San Gabriel Valley Medical Center on April 24, 2006 Chi passed away on Thursday, April 27, 2006 at 11:12 a.m. with his wife Betty and a few close friends by his side.

Elected to the San Gabriel City Council in March 2003, Chi was appointed Vice-Mayor in 2005. March 21, 2006 was an historic time for San Gabriel when Chi was appointed to serve as the City’s first Asian and Chinese-American Mayor.

Chi loved San Gabriel and cared about every member of the city organization. Although our hearts are heavy and we have lost a great friend, the process of remembrance, grief and healing will be respected. We join together to acknowledge and honor Chi by continuing his example of service to the community. Our thoughts and prayers are with Chi’s wife, Betty, and his family. Services for Mayor Mui will be held:
