Patricio Christian de la Fuente, son, father, brother and husband extraordinaire and wine aficionado left us on July 4th, 2017 in his beloved Hong Kong. Since very early on, Patricio was a passionate young man, with a strong and unbreakable love for his family and friends and an amazing drive to excel in the wine industry in Hong Kong and surrounding countries. Outside of his passion for the food and beverage industry, Patricio was the most sociable, loyal, and charitable person his family and friends knew.
Patricio dedicated himself to improving the lives of those around him -- family, friends, and even strangers; no request was ever too big. In his 44 years on this planet, he lived a multiple of lifetimes, and up to the moment of his passing, he grinned, smiled, and took the challenge ahead as only he would. His family and friends know exactly what we mean. He may have left this world too early, but he has made an everlasting mark on so many lives and continues to do so even as we say goodbye.
As such, the family has set up this memorial fund to honour Patricio's generous spirit and to help underprivileged cancer patients get access to proper medical facilities and treatment through the Hong Kong Adventist Hospital Foundation's Cancer Fund. (Donations made here will be directly deposited into the Foundation's Hang Seng Bank Account: 733-0433404-668. Please email [email protected] should you need a receipt.)
Patricio, you will be dearly missed, but we know that your legacy will live on.
