Obituary

Alfred Ka Kee Chu born in Canton China, on October 15, 1948; son of Shuiha Tsang and Sing-hon Chu died on August 11th 2022. Alfred studied English in Hong Kong, and later immigrated to the United States. He attended the University of Texas at Austin where he earned a degree in Pharmacy. He worked as a Pharmacist in El Paso until he retired at the age of 63.

He is survived by his loving wife, Esther Chu and two daughters, Roxanne Benatar and Sanddrick Bauer; son-in-law, Owen Benatar and his three grandchildren, Ashton Benatar, Micah Benatar, and RK Bauer.

Alfred was a man of principal and values. He was determined and unwavering. He valued many things, but family and education were a priority for him. His presence filled his family with love and security. This contribution will help them carry on during his absence. We will be apart but for a short while. Thank you, Alfred, for all the memories.

Alfred died peacefully at home surrounded by his family.  In lieu of flowers please donate in his honor to the American Cancer Society at http://bitly.ws/tptf.

    You are gone from my sight, but not from my heart and mind. You gave me many gifts. Among the most valued are our two beautiful supportive daughters, Roxanne and Sanddrick. They will help me navigate life through this difficult time. The girls and grandkids will remind me that you are still here. Also the gift I will forever cherish, is the beautiful smile on your face at your death. It is this smile that tells me I did everything right. I have forty- six years of memories from which I can draw strength to keep going on. You were a good husband to me, a loving father to the girls, and a doting grandfather to the grandkids. You were always there for me as I was for you. Alfred I know you’re still here; you haven’t left us behind.
    Love Always,
    Esther

    Today would have been your 74th birthday. I want to honor you on this special day. You were my best friend, my buddy, and the most reliable man in my life. I miss you more than words. Losing you has been like no other pain I have ever experienced, but I rest well knowing you are in a better place. You taught me how to be ambitious, grateful, and humble. You have inspired me to achieve goals that I thought were insurmountable. You are forever in my heart, with me always. I love you dad.

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
